Lagos Ranks World’s 3rd Worst City to Live in (SEE BEST 5)

-

- Advertisment -

A report released  yesterday by The Economist Intelligence Unit ranked Lagos as the third worst city to live, maintaining its position at the lowest rungs of the Global Liveability index.

The city placed 138th out of the 140 cities ranked in the latest liveability survey, just above war-ravaged Tripoli and Damascus.
“Of the poorer-scoring cities, 13 continue to occupy the very bottom tier of liveability, where ratings fall below 50 percent and most aspects of living are severely restricted.
“Continued threats from groups like Boko Haram acts as a constraint to improving stability in Lagos,’’ the report stated.
Escalations in hostilities in Libya prompted a sharp decline in liveability in Tripoli, according to the report, while Damascus, although seeing a stabilisation in its decline, remained rooted to the bottom.
The top five best countries to live in, according to the report, remain unchanged from last year and they include
1.      Melbourne, Australian
2.      Vienna, Austria
3.      Vancouver, Canada
4.      Toronto, Canada
5.      Calgary, Canada.
While no African city made it to the top 10 most liveable cities, five were in the 10 least liveable cities.
