The Lagos State government has launched the first fuel pump station on the Lagos Island waterways to subserve private and commercial boat operators.

As a corollary, the pump will promote water transportation and generate more money to allow boat operators to easily refuel their vehicles.

Previously, boat operators resorted to buying fuel from petrol stations in kegs and refuelling their boats from the kegs.
