“This is to officially inform you that MMM Nigeria is open for business a day earlier than promised! Let’s go there Nigerians!”@MMMNigeriaHelp posted on its time-line.
The message sounded too good to be true. The promoters of the Ponzi scheme had promised January, 14 as resumption date after shutting down their operations about mid December, 2016. Throwing its portals open on the eve was going to be simply magic.
The joy of subscribers knew no bounds and a young Nigerian expressed his happiness in this song that has gone viral. Take a listen.
For the more than three million Nigerians, mainly unemployed, lower income earners and students of tertiary institutions who patronized the MMM Ponzi scheme, could this be hope restored?
Will the return of the MMM scheme, largely perceived as an internationally coordinated scam, signal a new beginning that will put to shame a performance earlier tainted with scandals in South Africa and elsewhere? Time will tell.
Ripples Nigeria…without borders, without fears
