– Nigerian develops app that will deliver on-demand fuel to Nigerians’ cars
– The man says this will take away a lot of the pain and pressure and stress of people
Subomi Owo-Odusi, founder of FueledUp, has created an application that will deliver fuel straight to its users in Lagos state. The app is due to launch at the end of May.
“This will take away a lot of the pain and pressure and stress of people waiting for hours,” the young Nigerian said. According to the developer, the idea came to him from his experiences of life in Lagos. “I understand the stress that people here have,” said Owo-Odusi, who is from Lagos. The instructions of the using of the application are very easy. After downloading it Nigerians will be able to touch a “Get FueledUp” button, which displays the price per liter. Then, the customers enter how much petrol they need, car information and choose a delivery time frame. The price for such a service will be the cost of the fuel plus a small fee for the transportation.
Nigeria has been suffering from fuel crisis for months. Despite being Africa’s largest oil producer, it had huge fuel lacks a year ago which nearly paralyzed the country. However, oil marketers in the South-West zone of the country commenced loading of petrol in Apapa, Lagos, as the main depots offer 24 hours service. Ibe Kachikwu, the minister of petroleum, apologised to Nigerian over the lingering fuel scarcity in the country and his “no magic wand” comment.
