Yes o, another startup. Somehow ideas keep coming, even where there is no light or water or free internet or… Nevermind!
So, Nawhere.ng is a website that
would allows visitors search for fuel stations in their locations and around them. Visitors can search for fuel stations in their location based on street/ city/town/ state and similar search criteria. Users will be able to see all the filling stations in their area, see filling stations with available fuel and their current selling price and many more.
After hearing about it for sometime and also heard that Nokia Is Planning A Massive Comeback And Nobody Noticed, I decided to checkout the site and I was not moved. The idea is relatable, considering the fact that almost every Nigerian queues for fuel but the site is missing something. It doesn’t update in real time
and it doesn’t give free fuel They’d probably need to build a mobile app to fix the real time update issue or dash every filling station worker a phone to let me know that their fuel finished 10 minutes ago while I was stuck in traffic on my way. You get it?
No real time updates on the web; No one wants a situation where he/she will see fuel in Yaba for example at Mobil and on getting there from Obalende they’ve stopped selling. It’s really annoying! I was not the only one that pointed this out though.
Then on Radar, they posted this cool topic about Nawhere.ng (See here) and LordBanks himself pointed out something:
This means Nawhere.ng is not the only petrol-informer out there. They need to up their game and
deliver fuel to our doorsteps. Everything’s possible with technology.
