Maybe you need to be reminded that resources from those areas were used to get Lagos to the level it is today. Maybe you forgot that Lagos was once the administrative capital and resources were required from the Igbos, Northerners and the Niger Delta to develop infrastructure in Lagos. Now you can see that Lagos has become home for all.

The stat is as fake as sand on.the moon


So u mean Maiduguri, Adamawa, yola, Kaduna, Benue .. Places u sleep with one eye closed are more livable than Lagos that houses over 20 million persons.. Ahn mk una dey sufree dey lie..
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

Terrorism in the North is an anomaly created by greedy and wicked power mongers...

Remove that unfortunate misnomer, no sensible person will pick Lagos ahead of Maiduguri, Kano, Minna, Kaduna, Jos, etc...

I have lived and worked in almost all major Nigerian Cities including Lagos, so I know what I speak of.

No normal human being should live and raise families in that metropolitan madhouse. Fact!!!

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.

My friend, this is not about colonialism or racism. This is truth staring you in your dumb mug. Deal with it!

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)

Indicator

Availability of private healthcare
Quality of private healthcare
Availability of public healthcare
Quality of public healthcare
Availability of over-the-counter drugs

CATEGORY 3: Culture & Environment (weight: 25% of total)

Indicator

Level of corruption (Adapted from Transparency International)
Social or religious restrictions
Level of censorship
Sporting availability (EIU field rating of 3 sport indicators)
Cultural availability (EIU field rating of 4 cultural indicators)
Food and drink (EIU field rating of 4 cultural indicators)
Consumer goods & services (EIU rating of product availability)

CATEGORY 4: Education (weight: 10% of total)

This is unfair and a big blow to the LASG and all the hard work.

There is really a lot we need to do as a country in whole. Lagos is suffering and less appreciated because the rest of the country is a shithole.

If all the states could keep up with lag, Nigeria will be attending a G7 summit like SA.

Who really wants to live in your glorified shithole? All we want is seaports to bring our goods and we'd exit your stinking cesspit for ever. Lagos is only attractive to us because of its seaports.

U can't have a mushin and ikoyi in the same city.

Lagos needs something called "regeneration", it a process where ghettos are demolished and occupants moved elsewhere.

It also needs a green plan plus travel infrastructure.

I understand how you feel but it's a hard pill to swallow, Lagos is just 'looking for the easy Way' and will never be recognized until the country as a whole is an Eldorado.

Lagos is like an island in the middle of a volcano...

When people's minds aren't developed, a city or country cannot be developed. Build one million ikoyis, it won't change anything
