Lagos ranked 138 among ‘world’s worst cities’ to live in
Nigeria’s largest city, Lagos, has ranked 138 among world’s worst cities – two slots ahead of the bottom of the league table which is held by Syria’s war-torn capital, Damascus (140).
Meanwhile, seven of the 10 least liveable cities in the world are in Africa, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) annual survey.
The league table ranks 140 cities on a range of factors, including political and social stability, crime, education and access to healthcare.
It was closely followed by Zimbabwe’s Harare (135), Libya’s Tripoli (134), Cameroon’s Douala (133), Algiers in Algeria (132) and Senegal’s Dakar (131).
Johannesburg gained the rank of 86, making it the most livable of African cities.
The annual report says cities in the Middle East, Africa and Asia account for the ten-lowest scoring cities where “violence, whether through crime, civil insurgency, terrorism or war, has played a strong role”.
The Austrian capital Vienna came in first place.
