Sahara TV asked a few of the 3 million Nigerians enrolled in the MMM money-making scheme how they feel about the current one-month freeze.
There were differing views, but everyone interviewed was either a participant or knew a friend involved in it.
Someone said, “It’s for our own good”. “I’m referring people and I will continue to refer people”. He said they are simply updating the site to accommodate more people, and even if he’s a “victim” he believes it will come back.
A man said it’s better than keeping money in the bank, because the money makes little to no interest there, and money is needed during this recession.
Someone said the freeze is even “better” than if people were allowed to remove it during Christmas period, because their money would have doubled after. He was confident, “it’s not gonna crash”.
Some others however think it’s fraudulent, someone even registered but didn’t go ahead to PH – “provide help”. Some resisted their friends who tried to recruit them, and “hope and pray it comes back” so their friends don’t lose money.
An older gentleman compared it to a wonder bank back in the day and refused all his friends who tried to recruit him.
