The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has denied involvement with popular Ponzi scheme, Mavrodi Mondial Movement (MMM).
The President’s spokesman described the reports credited to him endorsing the scheme as false, urging the general public to disregard them.
He said those trying to link him with the Ponzi scheme are “Impostors and identity thieves”.
“A statement endorsing MMM is being credited to me on digital media. It is false. Please ignore it. Impostors and identity thieves at work,” the Presidential media aide wrote on his twitter handle.

Recall that the popular money doubling scheme had announced a one-month ‘freeze’ on accounts of users in December 2016, with participants unable to access their money.
As part of its January 14 comeback plans, MMM has urged its participants to promote the scheme, in what it termed ‘Promo Tasks’. The new tool according to the operators will ensure the scheme attracts more users.
The Scheme had earlier in the week introduced the use of bitcoin as part of its payment option.
