Nigeria Will Consider Electric Cars Soon — Osinbajo

Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday in Abuja, said Nigeria’s energy transition plan will include, among others things the introduction of electric cars and decommissioning of generators.

However, the country must balance its drive for this transition by focusing on the ancillary infrastructure that makes them sustainable.

“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,” the VP said when he received a delegation from the US-based Rocky Mountain Institute.

The RMI is an international think-tank involved with the issue of the energy transition for the last four decades.

Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, disclosed this in a statement he signed on Monday titled ‘VP highlights FG’s energy transition goals as African carbon markets initiative progresses.’

He said some of the goals of the Federal Government in pursuing a just Energy Transition agenda was seeking among other issues, adequate Climate Finance, especially through the African Carbon Market Initiative.

According to the VP, 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.
