MMM-Nigeria, a group for mutual financial aid and donations on Monday organised a green party show in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to celebrate Nigeria’s Democracy Day.
The party, which held at the Millennium Park, was opened to members of the group and non-members alike.
Mr Seyi Bello, the President of Abuja Guiders Forum of the MMM-Nigeria said the gesture was part of solidarity by the group for Nigeria’s 18-years of uninterrupted democracy.
“This party is put together to celebrate our Democracy Day and since Nigeria’s flag is green-white-green, we decided to call it ‘green party’ as a mark of solidarity.
Musicians, comedians and other entertainers in the territory performed at the event. Bello explained that over three million Nigerians were members of the group. He explained that contrary to some people’s opinion about the Ponzi scheme, it’s a community of people providing financial help to each other.
“That is what defines us as a community of people providing financial help to each other on the principle of reciprocity and benevolence. In MMM, there are no lenders and no debtors. One participant asks for help, another one helps.’’
