Abuja, Lagos rank cheapest cities to live in Africa

Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, and its commercial hub, Lagos, have been ranked as the first and second cheapest cities for expatriates to live in Africa for 2024, according to Mercer’s Cost of Living rankings

The report highlights the cost of living is a crucial consideration for expatriates when selecting a city for relocation, as it impacts their quality of life and financial stability.

The findings attribute the affordability of these cities to currency depreciations, which have significantly reduced the cost of living for international assignees.
