Nigeria-made Social media platform, Crowwe, has applied for a licence from the National Broadcasting Commission following the Federal Government’s new directive to register all social media platforms in the country.
This is as the number of users rose to 31,245.
The app creator, Mr. Adamu Garba, who is also the Chief Executive Officer of IPI, said the Crowwe app which was taken down by Google playstore on Saturday, would return in a few days.
He said, “Crowwe now has 31,245 users with about 2, 270 business accounts. We have written a letter to the NBC applying for a licence in line with the Federal Government’s announcement but we have not yet received any response. If they don’t respond by Friday, we will send a second letter.”
On how soon the app woul return to the Google playstore, Garba said, “There are some lapses. It consumes a lot of
data based on user complaints so we decided to take up some opportunities to do that. We have edited. We will upload it by Saturday or so.”
