Written by Olakunle Oke on January 11, 2024
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has issued a warning that the ‘no gree for anybody’ slogan is capable of triggering crises in the country.
The force spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this during a press briefing in Abuja.
The ‘no gree for anybody’ slogan has gained popularity among Nigerian especially on the social media space.
‘No gree for anybody’ simply means ‘do not tolerate any form of nonsense from anybody’ or ‘do not allow yourself to be bullied by anyone.’
Speaking on the trend, Adejobi said intelligence reports show that the catchphrase is capable of plunging Nigeria into a crisis of monumental proportions.
The Force PRO added that, although the slogan is seen as “normal talk”, those in the security community view it as a “dangerous” slogan.
“The new slogan for 2024 for young people is ‘no dey gree for anybody.’
“We have been informed from our intelligence that this is coming from the retributionary sector that might likely cause problems across the country.
“No dey gree for anybody is being seen as just normal talk. In the security community, we have seen it as a very dangerous slogan that can trigger crises,” he said.
Adejobi said three members of a syndicate have been arrested in connection with the Christmas Eve attacks on some communities in Plateau State.
