Abuja -  Subscribers of the Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox (MMM), are planning to meet with the House of Representatives’ committees on Finance and Banking and Currency to seek for government’s recognition of the scheme.

MMM community in Abuja, who are planning to meet the lawmakers said it hopes to submit a proposal for the amendment of the Banking and Other Financial Institutions Acts (BOFIA) to legalise the operations of the scheme and similar money initiatives in the country.
