Gov.Fashola Must Hear This! Lagos Named 4th Worst City In The World

Lagos, Nigeria - August 2013 - BellaNaija

If you live in Lagos, you are in one of the world’s worst cities.
According to The Economist Intelligence Unit‘s Global Liveability Ranking, Lagos, Nigeria is fourth (4th) worst city to live in. It was scored 39.0 out of 100.
For the recent report by the EIU, all cities across the world are awarded scores depending on lifestyle challenges faced by the people living there. Each city is scored on its stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

Lagos was rated poorly and awarded the lowest score for stability. The report also stated of the fast growing African metropolitan city that “Rapid growth is not always a good thing because Lagos is now a magnet for two perpetual threats to peace, pirates and Islamist warriors. Boko Haram have a problem with cities like Lagos and also lots of weaponry.
Pirates threaten trade and use kidnapping as a method of funding. Islamist terrorist groups such as Boko Haram (“Education is forbidden”) want to create their own version of heaven on earth by destroying cities such as Lagos and imposing strict sharia law. Lagos has enormous potential but as yet little to show for it – hence its poor ranking.”
