Abeokuta Nigeria scored fourth from bottom on a new study of quality of life in 60 African cities conducted by Swiss research body Communaute d’Etudes pour l’Amenagement du Territoire at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL).

Lagos, another Nigerian city covered by the Swiss study was placed at 43rd position.

The study which included all of the continent’s capitals and its largest urban centres, was based on criteria including social and living conditions, infrastructure, governance and environment.

“Until now, rankings for Africa were done for investors and expatriates.”
Jerome Chenal, a Swiss urban sociologist who directed the survey told Afrique Mediterranee Business, the Paris-based magazine that commissioned the study, stating that theirs is the first survey focusing on life in African cities for ordinary people.

Four Moroccan cities, led by Marrakesh, ranked among the top 10, while Nairobi in Kenya and Abidjan in Ivory Coast which are magnets for expatriates, scored only 27th and 39th, respectively.

EPFL says it will conduct the study each year in the hope of standardising data on African cities.

Top Ten Best Cities To Live In On The African Continent According To The Study Are:

Marrakesh – Morocco
Johannesburg – South Africa
Alexandria – Egypt
Port Louis – Mauritius
Casablanca – Morocco
Tunis – Tunisia
Cairo – Egypt
Rabat – Morocco
Cape Town – South Africa
Fez- Morocco

Top Ten Worst Cities To Live In On The African Continent According To The Study Are:

Bulawayo – Zimbabwe
Blantyre – Malawi
Moroni – Comoros
Abeokuta – Nigeria
Ouagadougou – Burkina Faso
Khartoum – Sudan
Kigali – Rwanda
Cotonou – Benin
Yamoussoukro – Ivory Coast
Kampala – Uganda

Abuja tried but certainly doesn't rank high enough to be in Africa's top ten.

There are only two cities in the south west - Lagos and Ibadan. Others are towns.

Yenagoa is a town not a city. The only cities in the south south are port Harcourt and calabar, others are towns.

Before you all start writing rubbish about Abeokuta, remember this excerpt from the report

"The study which included all of the continent’s capitals and its largest urban centres, was based on criteria including social and living conditions, infrastructure, governance and environment"


This means Abeokuta is considered one of the largest urban centers in Africa which automatically put Abeokuta above your city except you're from Lagos
