According to Google, MMM Nigeria is trending. As more Nigerians get exposed to MMM Nigeria, it is important that patriotic Nigerians expose the true untold intention of MMM Nigeria.
Why will an individual continue to spend millions of dollars maintaining a website that connects individuals to donate money to each other? Why will an individual make it absolutely difficult (for himself) to scam the users of his website by ensuring users transfer money to each other using their local bank account?
Why endure being called unfriendly names for maintaining a brand name that people have associated with scam? Why does MMM Global maintain the MMM brand when they can easily re-brand and be seen as holy?
Why does MMM enjoy making people comfortable and full of hope in a better tomorrow?
In today’s Nigeria where MTN just fired 1000 contract staffs and reduced some salaries from NGN120,000 to NGN40,000 in a recession, why does MMM want to give these people hope to live for?
I thoroughly investigated how possible it is for MMM to scam the users of its website. In all countries it has operated and still operates, there have been issues of government, banks and investment agencies creating panic and forcing the system to crash but there have never been report of MMM running with anyone’s money (obviously because MMM doesn’t charge for its service and they cannot access participants money because participants donate to each other through their local bank).
If MMM cannot scam its users (because they can’t open bank accounts, it will be tracked by the authorities and frozen), how then do they maintain their website and why are they allegedly so kind in a very evil and wicked world?
So many questions. The more we ask, the more questions arise.
In all my research, since the existence of MMM, only government and banks have seized and frozen participants funds. MMM has never been accused of running away with participants funds.
Thousands of businessmen across the globe have used donations gotten from each other through MMM to expand and grow their business, thereby employing millions of people; changing lives and destinies.
Millions of employees have used donations from each other through MMM to start and complete projects (pay school fees, buy an automobile, pay for medicals, pay rent and so on).
Would this qualify as the goal and the true intention of MMM? If this is the intention of MMM, why then is there so much opposition from government and critics?
Slaves were beaten, jailed and killed for fighting for their freedom with their sweat and blood. They were called unprintable names by government, their masters and even by fellow slaves. Mandela and his co-agitators were jailed and some killed for fighting against white supremacy in South Africa.
Could MMM be facing the same resistance? Would their be an apology from the new leaders in the next 50years to the founders of MMM for the misunderstanding and oppression?
Is MMM disruptive in nature? Just like yellow taxi drivers (in the US) protested how Uber has taken over their customers without them (yellow taxi drivers) even noticing (by Uber being more affordable, comfortable and easy to use), Is MMM offering a better life that threatens the livelihood of some powerful people?
Would it be because there’s no product or service involved in MMM? Is this the reason for the resistance? First of all, MMM offers a free service (the use of the MMM website). I was offered the US dollar at NGN390 weeks back but refused to buy. If I had bought, I would be N100 richer per dollar today. If I bought $1,000, I would have made NGN100,000 without lifting a finger. All I would have done is trade dollar for nigeria. Does this make currency trading illegal?
I didn’t buy. I’m smart enough to realise the naira will fall even deeper but because every dollar I buy is a bet against the economy of the country I was born in (Nigeria). I choose to be part of the solution.
If every MMM participant lives wisely and invests the donations they get from each other through MMM in value based businesses and services, they will end up employing millions of people even the critics and changing the destiny of our potentially great nation, eliminating unemployment and poverty.
It is up to MMM participants. They determine the intention of MMM. They will live the untold story that history will judge MMM by. MMM’s intention is whatever the participants decide to do with the rare opportunity they’ve been given.
As an aside, some people are born full of doubt and blind to opportunities. It is not their intention to hate or dislike people who embrace opportunities, it is just the way they are; arguments and abuses won’t win them over. Success (not just in MMM) but in real life will be sufficient to make enemies friends. After all, Mandela’s ability to inspire his people not just outside prison but even in jail earned him friendship with his white enemies and they supported him to become president.
