To help Nigeria transition to a low-carbon economy, the Nigeria Police Force have announced plans to launch a “Go Green Initiative” in 2024.

At a side event of the ongoing COP28 climate change meeting in Dubai on Monday, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun made this statement.

He clarified that this project was the Nigeria Police’s effort to reduce carbon emissions.
He said that the sustainable development initiative would also increase the police’s efficiency and ability to combat crime and uphold the nation’s peace and order.

“There is a growing concern about climate change around the world.

“What the police are doing is blazing the trail so that other government agencies will follow suit.

“The initiative plans to encourage a lifestyle change amongst officers by implementing various eco-friendly strategies.

“These include planting trees around police stations, using solar power to light up police facilities, and rolling out gas and electric vehicles,” said the police chief.

Egbetokun also stated that the project would contribute to Nigeria’s worldwide commitment to minimizing the effects of climate change.
