Adamu Garba’s Crowwe application has been removed from Google play store.
The Crowwe app, which has been described as an instant messaging and financial transaction app that comes with a digital wallet that helps to transfer and receive money while chatting, has received worst reviews.
Following the announcement of Twitter ban by the Federal Government of Nigeria, the former presidential candidate presented the Crowwe app as an alternative to the microblogging website that can help “to grow Nigeria.”
“Join Crowwe now! Build your country, Build your people and Build your Brand. Join Crowwe now., Mr Garba tweeted.
“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 has banned the operations of Twitter in the country.
It could be recalled that Mr Garba had earlier called for a ban of the microblogging platform when it deleted president Buhari’s genocidal 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 need to shut down from Nigerian internet space. Twitter need to get out of Nigeria,” he tweeted.
Mr Garba’s attempt to seize the opportunity of Twitter Ban in Nigeria to advertise his app met stonewall rejection from Nigerians.
“Check the Crowwe app’s terms and conditions. It’s the SAME thing as Spotify. They didn’t even bother editing. Like if you click on the hyperlink it redirects you to Spotify theft. What sort of pangolo app is that?” A critic alleged on social media.
The app has since received terrible reviews which could be responsible for its disappearance on the play store app.
