Reacting to a report by the Economist Intelligence Unit, EIU, that ranked Lagos State as the third most dangerous city among 140 cities worldwide to live in,  Femi Falana says he doesn’t believe it.

According to the EIU report, Lagos ranked 138th out of the 140 countries in the world.

“With a relatively low score of 38.5 percent, the city was just a little above Syria’s war-torn capital, Damascus, and Bangladesh’s Dhaka,” some parts of the report read.

However,  the Senior Advocate of Nigeria and foremost Human Rights lawyer debunks the claims, says Lagos State government shouldn’t keep mum about the damning report.

In his words:
“I dont believe Lagos is the third dangerous city to live in because there many cities in other countries that are more dangerous than Lagos.

“The Lagos State Government should quickly respond to this report and let people know that the state is safe for people .

“The only challenge we are facing is that the quality of our representation in government is low, at the state, local government and federal levels.

” Lagos alone has 24 members at the Federal House of Representatives, let us be sincere to ourselves how many of them do we hear about?
“We have 40 legislators in the state house of assembly, what is the quality of the debate there?
Who are the people representing us at the various local government levels ?
