According to Juho, there is no way to move a device that launched with Android to Android Go Edition. Nokia has also worked closely with Google & Qualcomm to enable Android 8.1 Oreo for Nokia 2. But, Android Oreo requires more system resources compared to Android Nougat resulting in UI lag on Nokia 2.
