              Lagos is NOT one of the worst cities to live in... let's prove it to you - YNaija

                According to the ranking, Lagos is the 3rd worst city to live in the world, after Tripoli and Damascus. It is disheartening that our Lagos is placed next to war-torn cities. They say “continued threats from groups like Boko Haram act as a constraint to improving stability in Lagos”. Those of us who live in Lagos know that this is far from the truth and our city does not deserve to continue to be at the bottom of that uninformed list. We doubt if anyone from the EIU has been to Lagos recently to see the transformation going on here.
