Checks across riverine communities in the Niger Delta have shown that no less than 12 floating fuel stations are located six states of Nigeria.

These states include Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Rivers, and Ondo. These unique fuel stations, operating on the waterways, serve as vital lifelines for communities in these coastal regions, providing a convenient and accessible source of fuel for both land and water-based transportation.

The presence of these floating fuel stations underscores the unique challenges and needs of the riverine areas, where traditional land-based infrastructure may be limited or difficult to access. By operating on the water, these facilities are able to reach populations that might otherwise struggle to obtain the essential resources they require, fostering greater connectivity and economic activity in these remote and often isolated communities.

The strategic placement of these floating fuel stations in the listed states highlights the importance of ensuring that all regions of the country, even the most geographically diverse and hard-to-reach areas, have access to the essential services and infrastructure necessary for sustainable development and improved quality of life for the residents.
