Play Store: Google deletes Adamu Garba’s Crowwe app
The Chief Executive Officer, IPI Group, Adamu Garba

Google Playstore, a digital distribution service operated and developed by Google, has removed former Presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba's Crowwe app.

Following the Federal Government's announcement to ban Twitter, Garba 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."

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 has received the worst reviews, Cliq.Ng reports.

Recall that Garba, in an interview with Channels TV expressed happiness over the federal government's decision to ban Twitter.

"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.

As a result of this singular act, Garba's attempt to advertise his app met rejection from Nigerians.

Tweeps criticized the application on many grounds including its privacy policy.

For instance, critics discovered that Crowwe's Terms and Conditions were copied from another app, Spotify.

The discovery was also verified by Dubawa, a fact-checking platform, to be true.

"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.
