One-Month Freezing of Confirmed Mavros

Dear members!




As usual, in the New Year season the System is experiencing heavy workload. Moreover, it has to deal with the constant frenzy provoked by the authorities in the mass media. The things are still going well; the participants feel calm; everyone gets paid – as you can see, there haven’t been any payment delays or other problems yet – but!.. it is better to avoid taking risk.:-)) (Moreover, there are almost three weeks left to the New Year.)

Hence, on the basis of the above mentioned, from now on all confirmed Mavro will be frozen for a month.

The reason for this measure is evident. We need to prevent any problems during the New Year season, and then, when everything calms down, this measure will be cancelled. (Which we will definitely do.:-))

We hope for your understanding,

Mavros are the unit of pseudo-currency used by participants. (Mavro is shown below in the MMM Android app)
Mavro, while in the system, grows at a rate of 30%.

A confirmed Mavro refers to a pledged amount (Provide Help) that has been redeemed (Paid to another participant).
Frozen Mavro is not an alien term in the Mavrodian (what Participants of MMM fondly call themselves) circle. Mavros after being confirmed stay frozen for certain period of time, until it’s release date (usually less than 3 weeks).

In a recent Christmas promo launched by the website, additional 20% accrued bonus was added to all who made pledges, this led a lot of faithful Mavrodians to make pledges. They were mostly matched to pay their pledge faster than usual.

It is unclear if during this mandatory 30days of being frozen, whether frozen Mavro will grow.

All things being equal, some of the implications of this would include:

1. No participant can get help (withdraw the already paid money) until January 12th 2017.
2. Due to number 1 above, no participant can Provide Help (pay money) since no one gets paid till January 12th 2017.

The news broke at 1am Tuesday morning, a day always anticipated by Mavrodians as Mavro Day, since Mavros grow on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Hence many participants wait till Tuesday morning before asking to Get Help (make withdrawal).

It’s been claimed by participants that the same scenario played out in December 2015, hence they are calm assuring every member that it is not a crash landing.

Yesterday the founder Sergey Mavrodi was alleged to have warned of how much Nigerians will suffer if MMM crashes, while he asks the government not to interfere with its activities. -apprdriod/NL

We Will Construct 400 Dams Before 2019, President Buhari Declares

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday declared that his administration would construct additional 400 dams to boost irrigation across the country before the expiration of his term in 2019.

He also revealed that Nigeria’s population doubles itself every 25 years, stressing that this was why the government had decided to focus on revamping agriculture and solid mineral sectors.

Buhari disclosed this to delegates from Africa and other continents at the 32nd Annual Meeting of the Food Crisis Prevention Network which was held in Abuja.

The President said the government had started implementing measures to expand the production of grains and other agricultural produce in Nigeria, adding that the country would start experiencing three harvesting seasons when more dams become operational in the next two years.

Buhari, who was represented by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said, “We can no longer rely on rainfall, we have to create more dams, water reservoirs and insist on harvesting food at least three times in a year.

“I am happy to tell you that that programme is being designed and in the next two and half years we shall add to the existing 200 dams at least another 400 dams across the country to encourage irrigation on a large scale.”

On Nigeria’s increasing population, he said the number of citizens across the country might hit 500 million by 2050 and that there was the need to plan how to feed the nation when its population gets to that level.

Buhari said, “We are not unmindful of our huge population here, hence the need to urgently ensure that the agricultural sector is revitalised as soon as possible. Our population here doubles every 25 years. Estimates are that by 2050 Nigeria will be in the region of 450 to 500 million persons, making us the third most populated country on planet earth coming after China and India.

“The question, therefore is, how do you feed 500 million people with hoes and cutlasses as their tools for agricultural development? However, we are proud to say that we are currently achieving a lot. This year, the harvest of grains in Nigeria has been absolutely exceptional as other African countries have been coming here in search of grains.”

The President noted that the poor handling of agriculture by government had contributed to the depletion of the country’s foreign reserves, as Nigeria spends $22bn annually on food imports.

“Our failure to restore agriculture in the face of crisis in the North-East has increased the percentage of food imports and caused a severe reduction in our foreign reserves. Africa is said to spend $35bn annually on importing food. Of that amount Nigeria accounts for $22bn and there is no need for this, because presently Africa has no excuse of not being able to feed itself,” he added.

This, he said, had warranted a renewed focus by the present government to revamp agriculture and solid minerals development, to revive the economy and make it an export-driven one capable of sustaining prosperity for the masses.

Buhari added that it was high time African countries stopped the importation of harmful foods from other continents as most of these items were toxic and cause health challenges based on findings by an agency in Nigeria.

He said, “Our National Agency for Food Drug Administration and Control have had reason to analyse certain products not originating in West Africa but imported into West Africa and then into Nigeria to be of extremely harmful effect in the diet of our people. Too many of our people are dying of new diseases as a result of this.

“We are therefore making an appeal to all of us in the sub region to do what we can to make sure that nothing harmful comes in through our borders.”

The President also urged African countries to change the method of cattle breeding on the continent, as he stated that there was need to stop the roaming of cattle in order to forestall conflicts between herdsmen and farmers.


Presidency Concludes Plan To Sell Two Aircraft

The Presidency has concluded the process for the sale of two presidential aircraft, a Falcon 7x executive jet and Hawker 4000, The PUNCH has learnt.

In a statement on October 4, the Presidency had confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari had authorised the sale of the two jets.

Advertisements were then placed in newspapers for interested buyers to bid for the aircraft.

A top Presidency source told our correspondent on the condition of anonymity on Monday that the process of selling the aircraft which was handled by the Office of the National Security Adviser had been concluded.

He said, “The bids were opened in the presence of all interested parties about two weeks ago.

“At the end of the exercise, all those who participated commended the process which they described as very transparent.”

When asked about the identities of the preferred bidders and the amount the Federal Government would realise from the sales, the source said the details would soon be made public.

He, however, said the details would only be disclosed after the report of the sales might have been presented to the President for approval.

“The report will be made available to the President first. Once he approves it, it will be made public in accordance with the present administration’s policy,” he said.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, had in the October 4 statement said the decision to sell the jets was in line with the directive of the President that aircraft in the Presidential Air Fleet be reduced to cut down on waste.

Two aircraft in the fleet had also been handed over to the Nigerian Air Force for its operations.

Shehu had said, “When he campaigned to be President, the then All Progressives Congress candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, if you recall, promised to look at the Presidential Air Fleet with a view to cutting down on waste.

“His directive to a government committee on this assignment is that he liked to see a compact and reliable aircraft for the safe airlift of the President, the Vice-President and other government officials that go on special missions.

“This exercise is by no means complete.

“I am sure the Commander of the Presidential Air Fleet will any time from now, call you to a ceremony at which he will hand over some other aircraft to the Nigerian Air Force for their operations.”

According to the Presidency, the PAF had 10 aircraft at the inception of this administration.

These are: Boeing Business Jet (Boeing 737-800 or Air Force One), one Gulfstream 550, one Gulfstream V (Gulfstream 500), two Falcons 7X, one Hawker Sidley 4000, two Agusta Westland AW 139 helicopters and two AgustaWestland AW 101 helicopters.

Each of the two Falcon 7X jets were purchased in 2010 by the Federal Government for $51.1m, while the Gulfstream 550 costs $53.3m, a former Minister of Information, the late Prof. Dora Akunyili, had said.

With the planned sale of two and the handing over of two others to NAF, the fleet now has six aircraft.


Ngige Is Running His Mouth To Please His Master For Claiming Buhari Loves Ndigbo, IPOB Says

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has slammed minister of labour, Chris Ngige over his recent claims that the South-East geopolitical zone has not being expunged from the scheme of things under the current administration.

The group accused Ngige of running his mouth just to please his pay master in Abuja.


Ngige had while speaking during the annual convention and 2016 graduation ceremony of Skill Acquisition Students of Bina Foundation, Enugu, said contrary to the statement purportedly made by Ohanaeze that Ndigbo were being excluded, the antecedents of Buhari showed that he loved Ndigbo.

But IPOB, while reacting via a statement by its spokesman, Emmanuel Powerful, said people like Chris Ngige and other political jobbers feeding off the crumbs from the master’s table should be ashamed of themselves and know that the day of reckoning was fast approaching.

He said, “Anybody or group of persons against the new found courage of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in supporting the quest for freedom for all must examine his or her conscience before offering an opinion.

“Nevertheless, We IPOB have gone beyond the rent-boy era of politics in Igbo speaking part of Biafra that is something these no hopers should know.

“This is the time to embolden the few good men left in Igboland not to pander to the interest of political vultures who have brought nothing tangible to the emancipation discourse championed by our leader mazi Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB members worldwide.

“Our goal remains the attainment of absolute freedom in deed not just in mere words, for all oppressed peoples of Biafra and beyond.

“We also commend the Ohaneze leadership for demonstrating the leadership charisma for once through out their period in office as executive in Igboland.

“Again, as long as the Ohaneze Ndi Igbo and other groups and social cultural organizations in Biafraland remains on the side of the truth without fear or favour IPOB and its leadership will continue to support every of their initiatives aimed at liberating, the emancipation or promotion of our people.

“We hope that other social cultural organizations and elders in Biafraland of Ijaw, Ishekiri, Anang, Ibibio, Kalabari, Opobo, Igala, Idoma, Ogoni, Urohobo, Igbanke etc will come out and toll the line with the recent statements made by Ohaneze Ndi Igbo towards the realization of God’s nation Biafra and the liberation of our people.

“Until this sacred and divine mission is accomplished, IPOB worldwide will never rest’ so also our ordained leader and prophet of our time Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
