Garba’s attempt to use the opportunity of Twitter ban in Nigeria to advertise his app was rejected by Nigerians, who condemned the app.
The highly controversial Crowwe application has been deleted from the Google play store.
A former Presidential aspirant, 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.
Garba, via his Twitter handle, had always tried comparing his app with the microblogging platform, Twitter despite the worst reviews on Crowwe.
Following the announcement of the Twitter ban by the Federal Government of Nigeria, Garba urged Nigerians to come on board the Crowwe app as an alternative to the microblogging website that can help “to grow 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 Garba had earlier called for a ban of the microblogging platform when it deleted President Muhammadu 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 needs to shut down from Nigerian internet space. Twitter needs to get out of Nigeria,” he tweeted.
