The social media application, Crowwe, of former Presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, has been deleted from the Google play store.
Adamu Garba, who also doubles as the CEO of IPI Solutions, had launched the Crowwe app in October 2020 during the #EndSARS protest.
It was described as an instant messaging and financial transaction app that comes with a digital wallet; that helps to transfer and receive money while chatting.
Adamu Garba, via his Twitter handle, had always tried comparing his app with the microblogging platform, Twitter; despite the worst reviews on Crowwe.
The politician had urged Nigerians to download the app; after the announcement of the Twitter ban by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
He tweeted, “Join Crowwe now! Build your country, Build your people and Build your Brand. Join Crowwe now.
“This is the best opportunity to grow Nigeria to Build Nigeria, Crowwe to the World.
“Join Crowwe now! Build your country, Build your people and Build your Brand. Join Crowwe now.
“This is the best opportunity to grow Nigeria to Build Nigeria, Crowwe to the World.”
He also expressed his excitement in an interview with Channels TV that the federal government had banned the operations of Twitter in the country.
It could be recalled that Adamu Garba had earlier called for a ban of the microblogging platform when it deleted President Muhammadu Buhari’s tweet.
“Twitter has no right to infuse into our local political affairs. It’s a company, not a government. By removing our democratically elected President’s speech to the people of Nigeria, Twitter needs to shut down from Nigerian internet space. Twitter needs to get out of Nigeria,” he tweeted.
Critics also discovered that Crowwe’s Terms and Conditions were copied from another app, Spotify.
The app has since received terrible reviews which could be responsible for its disappearance on the play store app.
