The Nigerian Police Force expressed its strong disapproval of the popular slang, ‘no go gree for anybody’, being used by youths and citizens across the country.
The PUNCH reports that the popular slang “No Gree for Anybody” has already gained widespread attention.
Many believe the slang is about staying true to one’s beliefs and not easily succumbing to the influence of others.
However, the police, through its spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, warned that it could clamp down on people using the slang.
During a press briefing on Wednesday, Adejobi revealed that the police had received intelligence suggesting that the slogan had the potential to incite a revolution within the country.
He said, “Let me say that the new slogan for 2023, 2024 for our young ones is ‘no go gree for anybody.’

“We have been informed from our intelligence that this slogan is coming from a revolutionary sector that may likely cause problem across the country.
“‘No go gree for anybody’ is being seen as just a normal talk, but in security business, in the security community, we have seen it as a very dangerous slogan that can trigger crisis.”
The PUNCH reports that there have been numerous memes and posts circulating on social media that highlight the slang.
One meme features a tricycle being overtaken by a large vehicle, symbolising disregard for the right of way.
The slang already has a logo and has been inscribed on clothes and other items.
