In a recent ranking by Economist Intelligence Unit [E.I.U] Lagos has been ranked as the 4th worst city in the whole world.
The good news is that Lagos was also ranked as 2nd fastest growing city in Africa.According to the list which has countries from Africa and Asia in the first three,Lagos shares its 137 position with Port Moresby, in Papua New Guinea
The report released yesterday reads….
“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,”
