Unfortunately not, it's not a choice but a forced implementation due to the pending vulnerability of Huawei software.
Security updates will be available/provided for the next 90 days during the amnesty period. OS updates will not be provided as the next update will be post the 90 day period, Huawei will not be eligible to implement this update.
In relation to everyone is panicking for nothing, I don't agree. I didn't pay €779 for something that could be outdated in 90 days, where as my old OnePlus 6 would still be eligible for updates and hence a better option than a paper weight P30 Pro!

I find Three's reaction a bit naive, although understandable because it's not 100% sure this will stay in place.
This is not looking like it will blow over however, there are a lot of big manufacturers that are dropping Huawei left, right and center. Today it's Panasonic, the last few days it was the likes of Intel, ARM (a UK-based chip designer), Microsoft (no official statement but they have pulled Huawei laptops from their online store),...
Three should in my opinion start looking at a contingency plan because just hoping it will blow over won't do the trick I expect.

So apparently Huawei won't even has legal access AOSP, below from XDA.
It is important to remember that open source licenses work within our current copyright framework. They utilize the design of our copyright framework to give almost everyone the right to make copies of the source code, as long as you follow the terms of the licensing agreement. Since they operate within our copyright framework, they break down when the copyright framework breaks down. A country banning its resident companies from engaging in contracts with a specific company breaks how our copyright system works, and as a result, breaks how open source licenses work.

This new OS isn't going to fix anything though.
Once google play services is removed it will kill practically all push notifications from your apps, including non google apps, as most apps use googles GCM/FCM service to deliver push notifications. The only apps that might work are apps that are built to work in China.
