So who is lying to you?
I find it very difficult passing a night in Lagos. Way back, whenever I come to Lagos to buy stuff, I ensure I avoid passing a night in Lagos, by gladly taking night bus to run away from sleeping in Lagos.

I cant imagine where other Nigerian cities will rank if they carried out survey there,l. As far as I'm concerned, Lagos is the best city in Nigeria(congestion is the problem here).
Imagine if the survey was carried out in places like Aba, Onitsha, Kaduna, Ibadan, Ilorin etc...these cities are by far worst than Lagos. Lagos is the only sane place in Nigeria rn...as for the peopla happy about this news, please go back to your city since you claim Lagos is so terrible

If na only petty crime I agree, but in terms of terrorism and loss of lives na wa o.

If u take Lagos from Nigeria then Nigeria ceases to exist...

Wait u mean chad wey rebels dey, safe pass Lagos? Lmaooo
Let me educate you small. Lagos is one of the cities recognized in the world. So it's compared to Damascus and Afghanistan

Yepa! See all the cities they categorized Lagos state with despite all the pseudo-infrastructural development created by Sanwoolu.

Though I don't believe such about this report because they were not on ground to do a thorough analysis...this is a backyard report.

There’s no cities in USA/UK/Canada in most livable cities..

So it’s Australia and New Zealand that are most livable..

It’s a trashy something..

Okay...


Years ago I stepped into Lagos. My Lord, I couldn't tame the disappointment that struck me like an impact from a nuke. Sat in the car looking at what I didn't envision.

For a thing I sometimes prefer keeping certain things to myself, because when I talked to a few people about how a city should be, they think I was playing the tribalism card.

The ten liveable cities listed are the best amongst the best, and the least liveable cities are the worst amongst the worst.

Every time I land in that city, I keep querying what all the hype is about...

Lagos is a glorified slum. Te way Lagosians brag about their inhuman sufferings is befoddling. How will you sit in traffic holdup for 4 hours and be proud of it
Before you start ranting about Lagos, how many Nigerian cities made it to the lIst, to even be considered for ranking

How the rating is calculated

The liveability score is reached through category weights, which are divided equally into relevant subcategories to ensure that the score covers as many indicators as possible.

Indicators are scored as acceptable, tolerable, uncomfortable, undesirable or intolerable. These are then weighted to produce a rating, where 100 indicates that liveability in a city is ideal and 1 means that it is intolerable.

For qualitative variables, an “EIU rating” is awarded based on the judgment of in-house expert geography analysts and a field correspondent based in each city. For quantitative variables, a rating is calculated based on the relative performance of a location using external data.

CATEGORY 1: Stability (25% of total)

Indicator

Prevalence of petty crime
Prevalence of violent crime
Threat of terror
Threat of military conflict
Threat of civil unrest/conflict

CATEGORY 2: Healthcare (20% of total)

#WeCanDoBetter

Just like when the white man wrote in the history book that colonialism was a force for good and you guys swallowed hook line and sinker - so also this. colonialism was forced take over of a land and meant no good.

This EIU report is same thing - will they tell you australia or canada is least livable? Of course they wont! They will tell you its african countries lol.
