While the administrators of MMM communicated the several reasons for suspending payment on a scheme 3 million Nigerians have benefited from(also becoming 5th most visited website in Nigeria in last than 1 year), the main reason is however lost in the piles of explanations – official and unofficial.

“MMM has always advised that you use your #SpareMoney. Use your #SpareMoney and #SpareMoney only. Don’t be unnecessarily greedy,” MMM tweeted.

He explained that most participants would want to cash out their money for the festive period and that would lead to a breakdown of the system as it is a mutual aid community of individuals helping individuals.

He blamed a “heavy workload” being experienced by its servers and the panic caused by the Nigerian government and media for the development but said it will be back by mid-January, 2017.

He added that it was also a way of ensuring the sustainability of the scheme which has been under a lot of attack from the Federal Government and the media of its collapse in December.

The Nigerian Security and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), and Economic analysts warned Nigerians about the scheme. The government agencies warned that the same way the scheme has enriched some people, it would throw some into poverty.

The MMM is a brilliant scheme, a non-sentimental observer will tell you. It is a collector and distributor of funds, just like what the banks are doing…

MMM allows Nigerians to sign up and pledge a monetary donation to people who are in need of it. The pledge is made with a guarantee of 30% appreciation fee that is essentially an interest on the specific amount donated.

Main Reason for Suspension of Payment

The MMM is a brilliant scheme, a non-sentimental observer will tell you. It is a collector and distributor of funds, just like what the banks are doing – a bank, like MMM, will crash when we all(customers) panic and withdraw our money at the same time. While the scheme makes it look like your ‘investment’ is growing, and ‘dashes’ out money faster than the world’s biggest money minting complex can print money – the truth is, participants’ money is only being recycled – robbing peter to pay paul, and as long as participants(debtors) don’t all ask for money at the same time – the scheme will stay, maybe even for a thousand years.

Truth is, MMM is only susceptible to one thing- panic withdrawals, and until that happens like in Zimbabwe, not even the Federal regulators can shut down the scheme – since MMM is everyone and it is no one.

In Decembers, Nigerians(like other cultures in the world) have habits of over-spending and becoming very broke in January – and the only way to prevent mass withdrawals is to freeze all payments till mid-January when it will no longer be needed. With recent ‘negative’ publicities, the panic to withdraw funds will even become more and the system will evenly come crashing down through unfulfilled request – since no one knows the liquidity ratio of the scheme; it is unregulated and not a bank, and produces no real goods or commodity which can be used in exchange for withdrawal requests.

Truth is, MMM is only susceptible to one thing- panic withdrawals, and until that happens like in Zimbabwe, not even the Federal regulators can shut down the scheme – since MMM is everyone and it is no one.
