I'm sure that so many other cities in Nigeria did not even make it into the ranking at all. So before you start to yab the "Abeokuta", think well.

Enugu is the first resilient city in Nigeria.
Way before Lagos was considered.
So, yes, other cities were looked into and they found abeokuta ain't worth it

I wonder what criteria they use in their assessment. I have been living in Abeokuta since 2013 and will be relocating fully and settle down this year by God's grace . I love the town except the issue of water scarcity which is due to the rocky nature of the town.




Who Lagos /Abuja EPP

Ibadan is worse than Abeokuta. Go to places like mapo, Bere, oke ado, popo yemoja, oojo, sabo, you will know what original slum is. I bet you if you stay in Bere for a week you can fall sick and be admitted. Reason been that in the whole of Bere, 95% of the houses don't have toilets and they are so compacted to each other like sardine grin

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.

AbujaBoss:
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

forget city or no city, how can Abeokuta be worst city to live in when Onitsha is world's most polluted city and it's not safe to breathe the air in Kaduna

my brother lets just leave their Onitsha out of this. It seems you dont get the thread. Our historic town of abeokuta has formally been declared uninhabitable. Nothing remain again.

Who ever conducted and published this report must be a joker.

I currently live in Johannesburg and I have been to at least of the top cities in Africa and some of worst as well.

Am not sure of what parameters was used for their assessment, but Kigali, Rwanda is far more organized, secured, beautiful than
Cairo, Tunis, Rabat and even Johannesburg.

This people must stop peddling skewed report.

Are you saying there is no slum in ABK?

You ppl should even stop comparing IB and ABK. ABK is even smaller than bathroom to IB in size. Even in quarry as beautiful as the name is in ABK compared to other locations (iyano motuary, kuto, panseke, lantoro, kolobo... etc) there are houses without toilets and even those with bado toilet. You can be comparing ijebu-ode and ABK instead.

.So Abeokuta is worst than the present day Maiduguri?.

Well i don't know the criteria used here.

grin grin

Meanwhile, you mean to tell me this is Abeokuta in this 21st century? shocked shocked
Even for a pathetic country like Nigeria, this is too much. And this city has produced 2 presidents!!! Take note all those shouting for an igbo president. These crooks in power can produce an Igbo president from amongs themselves, another crook, just with igbo DNA, the end result wont be different. Instead let's campaign for 2nd niger bridge, federal roads, teaching hospitals, security, etc

and Lagos is 43 out of 60 cities in Africa

I wonder why? undecided

The list is drawn up based on questionnaires given to expatriates. Obviously cities/ towns with less traffic will do badly.

Do you know the definition of a city at all? And, do you know the difference between a town and a city?
