as a mark of solidarity.

extend that to the larger society as part of our social responsibility,”
Musicians, comedians and other entertainers in the territory performed at the event.
Bello explained that over three million Nigerians were members of the group.

its a community of people providing financial help to each other on the
principle of reciprocity and benevolence.
“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.’’
He therefore called on leaders at all levels to deliver basic
dividends of democracy to Nigerians, adding that the current recession
was affecting ordinary Nigerians.
“As we celebrate democracy, let our leaders remember that we need change in all aspects of our lives,” he said.
