Discover the Shocking Truth: Lagos Ranks as Fourth Worst City to Live In Worldwide!

The Economist Intelligence Unit Report

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), one of the agencies under The Economist of London has ranked Lagos State, Nigeria’s economic nerve centre, the fourth worst city to live in the world.

A recent report by the Economist Intelligence Unit shows that Lagos, Nigeria’s economic powerhouse, has been ranked the fourth worst city to live in the world. The report reveals that Vienna and Copenhagen retained their top positions as the most livable cities globally due to their good infrastructure, stability, strong education and healthcare services, and a rich cultural heritage. Other cities such as Sydney, Melbourne, and Vancouver were ranked third, fourth and fifth, respectively, on the global liveability scales.

Lagos was the second worst liveable city in 2022, but has now moved two spots up in EIU’s 2023 Global Liveability report. It was ranked above Algiers, the capital of Algeria; Tripoli, Libya’s capital; and Damascus, the capital of war-torn Syria.

The EIU said the economic capital of Nigeria moved two spots up due to improvements in healthcare and education. It was, however, stated that corruption is still a problem.

The report reads, “Even at the bottom of our rankings, cities such as Lagos (Nigeria) and Algiers (Algeria) have gained ground, with some improvements in their healthcare and education systems. Both are in countries that are energy exporters and have to some extent benefited from higher global oil and gas prices.

The EIU’s 2023 Global Liveability report indicates that Lagos has moved up two spots in comparison to its ranking in the last report. The city’s jump was attributed to advances in the healthcare and education sector. Nevertheless, corruption was highlighted as one of its significant challenges. The report went on to say that some progress had been made in the provision of infrastructure and public services despite corruption’s continued existence. It added that Lagos’s economy improved due to the decline in Covid-19 cases and an increase in public funding for essential services.

This report’s findings are mixed, highlighting the continuing challenges that Lagos faces while also acknowledging the improvements it has achieved in specific areas. The Nigerian government must take the report’s findings seriously and work towards addressing its ongoing corruptions to improve the city’s liveability index.
