The Vice President of Nigeria, Kashim Shettima, has stressed the nation’s commitment toward embracing electric mobility.

Shettima was speaking at an inspection of solar powered charging stations for e-mobility.

Nigeria has ambitious plans for its e-mobility strategy and wants to become a pioneer in sustainable transport in Africa.

He said: “E-Mobility deployment aligns with the Nigeria Energy Transition Plan (ETP), addressing emissions, air pollution, and energy security concerns while ensuring a greener future for Nigerians.”

Nigeria’s ETP is supported by partners such as Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) and the Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet (GEAPP).

The country’s federal government actively supports the transition, which includes boosting local assembly capacity for electric vehicles, establishing charging infrastructure, and enabling private sector participation.
