Lagos Ranked World’s Third Worst City To Live In Again

Lagos maintained its position at the lowest rungs of the Global Liveability index by ranking the third worst city to live in the world, according to the 2016 ranking by the Economist Intelligence Unit released yesterday.

Lagos 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 per cent and most aspects of living are severely restricted,” the report stated.

“Continued threats from groups like Boko Haram acts as a constraint to improving stability in Lagos,” it further said. But you and I know it is a LIE. Even in Nigeria, Lagos is not one of the worst cities to live in, so why didn’t they choose one of those states?
