Lagos ranked the world’s second-worst city to live in

Lagos has been named the world’s second-worst city to live in by The Economist.

In its Global Liveability Report for 2017 (paywall), only the war-torn Syrian city of Damascus ranks below Nigeria’s commercial capital.

Top of the pile was Melbourne in Australia.

Lagos was one of five African cities in the bottom 10. The others were Libya’s capital Tripoli, the Algerian capital Algiers, Harare in Zimbabwe, and Cameroon’s biggest city Douala.

The rankings are calculated based on five factors: Stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.

But one African city bucks the trend.

Abidjan, the biggest city in Ivory Coast, was recognised as one of the top five most-improved cities since the last survey in 2012.
