Nigeria: Lagos Ranked As World’s Third Worst City To Live In

A report released by The Economist Intelligence Unit ranked Nigeria’s largest city, Lagos, as the third worst city to live.

The city maintains its position at the lowest rungs of the Global Liveability index.

Several other global reports had also said that Lagos, with a population of over 22 million, would in the next few years become the 4th mega city in the world, with a population of over 30 million.


The city is placed 138th out of the 140 cities ranked in the latest liveability survey, just above war-ravaged Tripoli and Damascus.

Lagos scored highest in culture and environment, followed by infrastructure. It scored lowest in stability.

The top five best countries to live in, remain unchanged from last year and they include Melbourne in Australia; Vienna in Austria; and Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary all in Canada.
