"We really suffer from a lack of correct and timely data on which we can base our decisions making. (...) It is time that Africa stops relying on outsiders, including data. You find sometimes that local people don't know their own data. Outsiders have a lot of data: some are correct and some are not correct. We are not even positioned to say that this is not correct, the correct version is this one."
