A global business intelligence, Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has said Lagos, the Nigeria’s commercial capital city is the world’s second least liveable urban area.

EIU ranked Lagos 171 out of 172 countries in the list of most liveable cities in the world for the first quarter of 2022, according to the latest 2022 Global Liveability Index.

This report makes the Nigerian best city the worst in Africa as Damascus (Syria) and Tripoli (Libya) continue to anguish at the bottom of the list along with Lagos (Nigeria) as they face social unrest, terrorism and conflict.

The least liveable cities were Damascus in Syria, Lagos in Nigeria, Tripoli in Libya, Algiers in Algeria and Karachi in Pakistan, which scored 30.7, 32.2, 34.2, 37.0 and 37.5 respectively.

“The EIU further highlighted the top five most liveable cities in the world which are Vienna, Austria scoring 99. 1; Copenhagen, Denmark with 98.0; Zurich, Switzerland with 96.3; Calgary, Canada had 96.3 and Vancouver, Canada with 96.1

More than 30 factors are taken into account when calculating each rank, which are then compiled into a weighted score between one and 100.

From the indicators used for the ranking index which was stability, healthcare, culture & environment, education and infrastructure, Lagos scored 20.0, 20.8, 44.9, 25.0 and 46.4 respectively which dragged its score to 32.2 from a total of 100. -Vanguard

 Grin And if that's OUR BEST city, how much less are the others - Ibadan, Ilorin, Imo, Enugu......?? I don't even think it was this bad in Babangida's time sef - as bad as Babangida was.
Yet, our leaders in the belief they are "achieving" the best for the country in their capacity. We're surely enjoying it.

They are sick with their ranking! Lagos is the ecomomy hub of Africa, has the most expensive houses in Africa, maybe it was ranked based on over population and the slum areas?
