+1 Dave,
I also took a quick view of some parts of Accra, mainly the well managed neighbourhoods and even there the accuracy is very poor even those perceived as highly accurate. It recognises different parts of a building's roof as separate buildings and also maps shadows as buildings. We certainly want our communities mapped completely but not with messy data. I will advise you don't proceed with this import but if you still choose to continue please take Ghana out.

 Hello, everybody.Today I came across a new dataset created by Google, containing a majority of African nations, where they detected every building geometry, assigning confidence levels to every building.
Has somebody already written a request  to open-buildings-dataset at google.com requesting to use this data for OSM explicitly?
I can prepare a request in the nearest month and would be grateful if somebody could share a draft or an example of a similar usage request.
After a quick talk with a local OSM group, I've found that https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2017/03/17/use-of-cc-by-data/  
for courtesy and good form reasons, continue to ask for explicit permission to attribute via our websites.
