Adamu Garba, a former presidential candidate and businessman, has responded to allegations that he received N136 million from the federal government to develop his Crowwe app.
The “Federal Government has for two years been supporting IPI Solutions, a software engineering firm owned by Adamu Garba, to build Crowwe, a platform that would help the government quiet existing social media platforms in the country,” according to a report that has gone viral.
According to the publication, the “app was largely unusable,” prompting the Buhari-led administration to block Twitter indefinitely, with bank paperwork to back up the assertion.
In response, Garba called for a “party” to disgrace the “false news merchants” in a post on his Facebook page.
He added that “he will never give up on Nigeria”.
”They claimed I’ve cashed out, right? Let’s have a party to shame the fake news merchants.
”We will never give up on our country. So, no hard feelings.
”I’m old school so I present to you a proud Almajiri Dancer who loves his country, his people, his Crowwe, and his cows! Enjoy our legacy Plantashun Boiz,” he wrote.
