Nigerians are arguably the most innovative people in the world because in spite of the challenges we face. We always find a way to make things better, which is just what 23-year-old Nigerian Subomi Owo-Odusi is aiming to do with his app, FueldUp, which is an app that can deliver fuel to people on-demand wherever they are in Lagos.
According to Subomi Owo-Odusi “This will take away a lot of the pain, pressure and stress of people waiting for hours. I understand the stress that people here have,”
To utilize the app, a customer will:
- download the app from available platforms,.discover the prices available through the “Get FueledUp” button.
- Enter their car information and how much petrol they need as well as the delivery time.
According to FueledUp creator, after requesting fuel, customers will be present during delivery to get said product. They will then receive notifications on their devices that the transaction was successful.
Customers can purchase between 20 litres to 40 litres of fuel with a minimum of 18 litres while a cashless transaction will be made as payment for the services they receive from FueledUp.
Owo-Odusi says his background and contacts at depots in Lagos will ensure his company gets the fuel they need. Undeterred, he said his network on social media, is also helping get the word out about his upcoming launch.
The app, FueldUp, is to become fully functional by May 2016 and Owo-Odusi has been featured on CNN as a result of his ingenuity.
