ABUJA — The Buhari administration quietly took around N136.8 million from the Central Bank of Nigeria and used the money to bankroll Adamu Garba’s Crowwe social media platform, the people gazette reported.
The CBN on May 21, 2019, appears to have transferred N136.8 million to Mr Garba’s IPI Solutions, documents sighted by MANDY NEWS showed that they spend several amounts of money on Crowwe app to compete with Twitter and Facebook.
The source who revealed it to the people gazette said the Buhari regime paid money to Adamu so many times.
“We do projects and receive payments from the Central Bank,” Mr Garba said. “I think it is a project we did for the EFCC.” He was silent on whether or not the projects were through competitive bidding in line with extant public procurement regulations.
Crowwe was “100 per cent developed by us internally,’’ Mr Adamu added. “We are even looking for investors locally and internationally. We are looking for investors to further scale up and improve Crowwe capacity.”
