Survey puts Lagos as one of the worst cities to live in

A recent international survey has placed Nigeria's commercial hub, Lagos as one of the worst cities in the world to live in.

In a survey done by The Economist Intelligence Unit, under the Livability Ranking and Overview survey, the result which listed Lagos as the worst place to live in Africa ranked the city as 138th, out of the 140 cities that was surveyed.
The capital of Bangladesh; Dhaka and and Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea were the only cities ranked worse than Lagos in terms of livability.
The ranking uses political and social stability, crime, education, and access to health care, as some of the benchmarks to rate the cities.
The survey shows that out of the worst 10 cities to live in, six are in Africa.
