World Bank , IMF statistics on Nigeria not accurate – Buhari
Eniola Akinkuotu, AbujaPresident Muhammadu Buhari says the statistics on Nigeria released by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund are not necessarily accurate.Buhari said a lot of the statistics have no bearing on the reality on the ground.He, therefore, stated that there was a need for Nigeria to have its own independent statistics gathering mechanism.
The President said this in a series of tweets on Wednesday.He said he had mandated his economic advisory team with the new task of having proper statistics gathering mechanisms.Buhari said, “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.
“This must extend to data collection as well. 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.
“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 prioritise the collection of primary data.”
Both the World Bank and the IMF have in recent times lamented the debt profile of Nigeria in relation to GDP.The World Poverty Clock also described Nigeria as the World Poverty Capital, a designation rejected by the Buhari administration.The statistics regarding the high unemployment rate and poverty released by the National Bureau of Statistics which is a government agency, have also been rejected by the Buhari administration.
The statistics regarding the human rights records which was released by Amnesty International have also been rejected by the government.DOWNLOAD THE PUNCH NEWS APP NOW ON Read more: The Punch Newspapers »

How So you are more accurate Hmmmmmmmmm but it's accurate in Rwanda. You depend on them for your population yet you reject other statistics. What do you have see mumu, see granny, granny wey mumu, granny wey yeye, see mumu wey get affidavit 😂😂😂😂 Show us your own See who dey talk! Wetin we sabi... Then counter them by giving them yours either from NBS or NIMC
Once isn't in their favour isn't accurate. When IMF talks secondary school holders are suppose to be jotting. 😏 MBuhari couldn't show Nigerians his GCE, his former school have no copy filed. He has the audacity to tell organisations who have been collecting data as far back as when he's teenager that they produce inaccurate survey? Has he spoken to nigerianstat before making this shit up
Only dull person will belief this agencies and their data. We're less than 200m This are organizations that controls the world. Hun BABA you can do your own You know how to respond to IMF but doesn't know where your certificate is Confused specialist Okay faddy Then do your own less see what you have Says a man who can't calculate his age 🤣🤣🤣
Well, I work with facts, you guys work with figures.😁😁😁😁 There's no curse without a cause, NIGERIA! So we assembled these great minds and task them with manipulating statistics. Data collection tool is standardized globally so that x growth in Nigeria means x growth anywhere. But their loans are needed? Yeye dey smell!
Deluded somebody 😏 When it's in favour it's accurate, and when not in favour it's inaccurate. Mr. President, we should not manipulate figures to win election or get more allocation. The same figures will be used globally for generating economic indices for us. Baba with the facts. And some animals will say this is the president they want
So now Buhari knows more than the world's best economists....lol....na we ask for am...so we go get wetin we ask for....shikena!!! And you're wiser than all,gods of the land. 4 year tenure 3 years holiday Traveling president The worst government so far since I was born If I can just fast forward this administration so we entered 2023 quick Well all they think about is next election Stocking all the money to share for our lazy youth
Where is your own accurate figure? If they had released the figures favouring and praising you to high heavens they would have been the most accurate figures in the world to you. I don't even need their figure to know all is not well cos I live here and I feel the fangs. Come and see ooo... Romeosreal1 oluwaloninyo Iam_Jyde AishaYesufu akaebube adeyanjudeji iam_fto segalink
Their statistics will not be accurate when they're telling you the truth but when they're lying to you their statistics will be accurate. You plotted Nigerian into ugly financial mess finished. Economist aye 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 see who is talking o Anytime I see this man what comes to my mind is how come in 150m population this man is ruling a country for the 2nd time. Nah only him sabi do am
This is the consensus from the APC fools. Deny the econs and question the integrity of every single economic data including the one released by govt NBS! You reject World Bank and IMF's stats, reject NBS's stats, reject Amnesty International's stats, I bet you won't reject miyetti Allah I doubt if anyone of you actually read the content of the NEWS. Main issue is not even about IMF or World bank, it’s about domesticating our policies to reflect our economic reality. But trust to always choose a despicable headline.
What do you know? Ofu Says an illiterate Look at who is talking ...the white are lying right because of Obi speech at platform ...now your want to deceive Nigerians ...every 1min 6 Nigerians go into poverty and that is truth Am not a fan of worldbank&IMF due their imperialism motives, but dispute their index&statistics projections,then give your proves against it
I think BUHARI has dementia What does he know about statistics? dondekojo You know nothing mr man..😂 Which one? I have lost count Even in his affidavits result they did not pity him give him D8 in mathematics or Economics, he’s here countering world bank & IMF statistics. Oponu Agreed, was an error on their part because they were not working hard, kindly correct them grandpa.
See what someone that doesn’t have a common WAEC certificate saying😡 Then Oga Presido abeg tell us the correct one jor This is why nothing good or relevant can come from this MBuhari administration because they're so against criticism, they just want everyone to accept/believe they're doing well even when they know themselves that they're not trying
The prof has spoken! Oh you ppl know better than them A man that cannot provide common certificate has the odacity to question imf Nd world bank statistics on Nigeria Lets have the correct statistics to discredit the world bank and IMF Baba hunger dey for the country that is why they are rolling out those statistics no vex with them they are doing their job so just tell your people to step up their effort to so that things will get better sir
But they were very accurate during the reign of the previous administration? They will never be accurate as long as the figures don't patronise our awkward economy. Coming from a man who scored F9 in Mathematics in his affidavit WAEC result The Parable of the dichotomy of facts and figures. What do you know 🤦♂️
Always countering facts, stop the blame game and act accordingly, we are tired of the excuses Provide us with the right one sir Mr President, leave the IFM/ WB alone,the statistics they showed is the true pictures of what our economy look like, stop the blame game and work towards removing Nigeria as the capital city of world poverty countries. There is too much hunger in the land
You know better than them Bubu! Happy honeymoon Elder! Who cnt answer a simple question now correct , please I have a question for President Buhari, are the numbers from the North accurate as per the population or ballooned? Where is the accurate one that you have? Useless person... Na your own lie accurate abi
