Former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba has revealed why his social networking service, Crowwe, was removed from Playstore by Google.
The removal came on Monday, several days after the ongoing ban by the Federal Government on the Twitter platform in Nigeria.
It was gathered that some aggrieved Nigerians had taken to Playstore to discredit the app following the suspension of Twitter.
Garba claimed he asked Google to take down his social media platform from Google Playstore because he needed to update the code.
“We took down Crowwe App because we are trying to update the codes and then put it back up. There are some bugs which we identified which can prevent future downloads so we decided to bring it down, edit the code and then put it back up,” he said.
On whether the app was removed due to the complaints by Nigerians, Garba said, “Yes, a lot of people have been posting reports but it has no effect on the app. The truth is that before you publish an app, you have to pass through a lot of audits and a lot of these people commenting don’t know.
“The app being installed has nothing to do with the user but has everything to do with the app itself. There is a bug affecting the contact list information so we had to submit a support report to take it down which was done. We are almost done with the publishing and we will push it back and it might be installed tonight or tomorrow morning.”Follow us on social media
