Meanwhile, according to a yearly assessment from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) released on Thursday, Lagos is ranked the second-worst city in the world to live in.
Using the most recent 2022 Global Liveability Index data, Lagos was rated 171 out of 172 nations on the list of the world’s most livable cities for the first quarter of 2022.
This report makes the Nigerian best city the worst in Africa as Damascus (Syria) and Tripoli (Libya) continue to languish at the bottom of the list along with Lagos (Nigeria) over issues of social unrest, terrorism and conflict.
The cities with the lowest quality of life were Karachi in Pakistan, Damascus in Syria, Lagos in Nigeria, Tripoli in Libya, and Algiers in Algeria, which had scores of 30.7, 32.2, 34.2, 37.0, and 37.5, respectively.
