President Buhari Says World Bank, Others Are ‘Publishing Wrong Data About Nigeria’

President Buhari has raised an alarm of inaccurate data about Nigeria being published by World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and other world bodies.

The President who made the disclosure during his meeting with the recently-constituted economic council, warned Nigerians to be wary of some statistics from world bodies.

Buhari insisted that local institutions are better suited in the collation of records than foreign agencies as he advised the newly constituted economic council to prioritize a framework on data collection that would make national planning and policy making more feasible.

“Today, most of the statistics quoted about Nigeria are developed abroad by the World Bank, IMF and other foreign bodies. Some of these statistics are wild estimates that bear little relation to the facts on the ground,” President Buhari tweeted.

“We can only plan realistically when we have reliable data. As a government, we are taking very serious steps to improve the quality of data available for policymaking, and today I charged the Presidential Economic Advisory Council to prioritize the collection of primary data.

“We must domesticate our policies to reflect our local realities. While we very much welcome the cooperation and support we are getting from our friends abroad, it is important to make it clear that Nigeria can only truly move forward with homegrown solutions” he added.
