Osinbajo: Nigeria Will Consider Electric Cars Soon

Today in Abuja, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo stated that the introduction of electric vehicles and the decommissioning of generators are on the verge of being introduced into the country’s system.

To achieve this, he noted that the country must concentrate on the auxiliary infrastructure that makes these transitions sustainable.

When he received a delegation from the US-based Rocky Mountain Institute today, the VP said: “We will be considering the decommissioning of generators, development of cooking stoves, think through options such as electric cars; is it the right time? What about charging stations? These are some of the things we have to start thinking about.”

He furthered by saying the federal government would be working on issues of Climate Finance, specific projects that will advance the 2060 Net-Zero target of Nigeria and exploring the possibility of electric vehicles in the country.
