Farmfunded finally paid my capital.

Did you have to call them, email them before they paid you? They haven't paid me yet.

They said they started paying lower tier investors last month. Is your investment above N1M?

No it's much less than 1m

I just got off the phone with Farmfunded. They claim they have stated paying investors with capital below N1,000,000. Can anyone confirm this statement?

My investment with them isn't due yet and it's upward of N1M. I want know so that i can decide if to start fighting them legally now. Perhaps visiting their Kano office for a start.

Just to confirm do you mean FarmFunded or Farm Funds Africa (FFA)

Sis forget the move, count your loss abd move on

Na not me, If i had taken your advise, I wouldn't have received my money from 2 different investments from Thriv Agric. Giving up is for the weak. We worked hard and we got our money back, it wasn't a miracle, It is was a collective effort by the team involved.

Farmfunded investors we need to rally together and decide what to do. The company is not even making plans to come up with a payment plan. If you keep quiet, they will dissapear into thin air with our funds.

Crime / Are Igbos Allowed To Speak Their Language Publicly In Lagos? by Labelle(f): 5:26pm On Jan 07
I just left a supermarket somewhere in Lagos now and I cannot believe what happened.

The madam (of Yoruba tribe) was warning her staff at the counter not to speak Igbo with anyone including the customer she was conversing with. I was stunned at how irate she was, almost yelling that “she would not tolerate it”.

I then asked her why it was a problem since Yorubas spoke Yoruba all the time even within the office environment. This was her reply-

“No that is wrong, it is not SOCIALLY acceptable for both of them to speak Igbo publicly”, I then asked again why not, she was so furious…saying it may make a customer think they are gossiping… Each time she gave a response, she got even more angry. At this point the girl stopped and the customer walked away.

My question to Igbos in Lagos, is this a common occurrence where you live? Have you ever been berated for speaking your language in public?

I once bought an accessory for a phone, phone arrived before accessory. Phone was from the US and accessory from China. Phone arrived three months before accessory. Before accessory could arrive phone got stolen. One day I got a call I have an item at the PO, I rushed and it was the accessory and was told to pay ₦500 as postal fees. I just vex pay and now the accessory is just lying there and I can't even sell it as the phone is not a popular phone here (Google Pixel). These days even the accessory is lost, I just tire for shipping post covid19.

what accessory did you buy, I know someone who uses pixel

ThriveAgric is at the point where online campaign no longer matter to them. #ThriveAgricPayYourInvestors seems to be dying and they know it will happen. All these things you talk about are basically a waste of time, a bad review of a few won't make them pay all investors, there are already numerous bad reviews online.
Their terms and conditions expressly make it nearly impossible to win a case in Court.
Using "agberoism" to try and get your money, your best option at this time is to be present physically at their office (if they are still there). There is already a WhatsApp group of investors, you should do something offline.

I dont agree with you. his efforts are not a waste of time and will certainly go a long way in adding to the voices of screaming defrauded customers. We need a myraid of avenues for this. One or two channels is never enough. @stilldrift please go ahead to make the posts. The one on Medium will certainly carry some weight.

I believe sooner or later, it would become clear that all these agrictech companies are nothing but Ponzi schemes, just watch and see. Ponzi schemes work by making good returns for the first few years to build legitimacy and trust then dissapering suddenly. I have 2 investments with thrive agric due this year, I am not hopeful. I have only just come to my senses now.

This is the guy holding our funds with impunity

https://ng.linkedin.com/in/ukaeje

He is probably in his house right now watching reruns of game of thrones, without a care in the world of what goes on on nairaland or Twitter.

The only way we can our money back is to rally together to involve a lawyer formally. As a unit. Anything else will be blowing hot air. I failed myself for trusting in a Nigerian. There is a reason why the likes of CBN, SEC etc exists. I failed myself.

Lol...seun that started nairaland since he was based at sango or so if I remember correctly. He used to be quite active back then before nairaland grew this large. Back then it was known as a faceless forum and only very few people put up their pictures but yeah....seun was/is very real and he has worked his way up to a successful nairaland.
Op, are you seun, trying to create a conflict to drive more traffic?

Webmasters / Breaking News: Seun Osewa Does Not Exist by Labelle(f): 9:38pm On Dec 30, 2018
I just can’t hold it in anymore guys, so here is how it goes.

The name Seun Osewa was created by a group of researchers in the US as a front for establishing Nairaland. You see Nairaland was setup to push political and social agendas to the highest bidder using the Nigerian youth. These guys understood the influence these implants could have in driving certain political/social biases through the internet. Seun Osewa is just a bot. You would never see Seun in any tech events ever, ever, ever, not because he is a wise introvert who appreciates the value of being mysterious, but because he is simply a bot posing as Naija’s Mark Zuckerberg in beta stage.

Don’t be fooled by the way he tries to sound Nigerian, it’s a learned art and I was there from the start when it all began. I dare anyone to refute this. If you have a profile created after 2006, you cannot comment on this.

Health / Re: Lagos Ebola Volunteers Threaten Strike Over Lack Of Payment by Labelle(f): 5:43pm On Sep 07, 2014
Damn...Guys....SMH. The single thing that God has asked us to do for him is take care of the weak, widows, poor and our neighbors. Countries that strive to do this continuously receive blessings and favors from God, regardless of their religious beliefs. This is a universal law, and I am just surprised we Nigerians are yet to realize this.

Yet, we claim to be Christians, this is not normal, I am scared. How does a population get so hard-hearted, selfish with no ounce of empathy.

In case you cannot connect the dots, this is exactly why the government feels they can't be accountable to anyone, they do not feel for the masses, the same way the masses have no compassion for those around them.

Religion / Re: If You Tithe, You Are Obligated To Keep The Whole Law! by Labelle(f): 3:49pm On Dec 21, 2013
Pastor Kun:

And the fact that bidam deliberately left out verse 26 where God instructed in clear terms that the tither eats his tithe with his family whilst attempting to quote the scripture out of context is another evidence that bidam is a fraud. He knows the truth but his love for filthy lucre keeps him twisting scriptures for selfish gain.


Woahhhhh!!! I have been reading this thread for a while now and must admit that I have learnt so much about tithing from Nairaland.

I hardly make posts on this site, just breeze in to read topics of interest and breeze out although I have been a member since inception.

But today, I must admit that I am in utter shock....Anyone reading this today please take note.

All the while I have always wondered if people like Bidman where genuinely unsure/confused/unclear about the scriptures' postulations on tithing. but when i read the bible post he pasted above, conveniently omitting verse 26 of Deuteronomy 14, which was basically the core of the subject, I froze!!!

This basically means that Mr. Bidman very well knows this truth but is trying to out-smart Nigerians perhaps for monetary gains.

Woah. This further means that these people that come on here propagating tainted doctrines do not give a flipping coin about God, the Bible or consequence!!!. They are as hard hearted as daylight armed robbers.

Anyone who continues to join words with people like Bidman does so at his own peril.

yodiyokun: I just saw this case now. How do I contribute my 2 cents in cash? ETA: Seen Paypal account.
My 2 cents in kind:

We need to keep this lady in our prayers so that there are no complications from the surgery. This stuff is not moi- moi. I just had a goiter removed myself a few weeks ago and my voice and breathing were affected and I am still not recovered. I had this goiter for 15 years, if I had known then what I know now - I would have removed it immediately I got to oyinboland. I was fortunate that the complications were only voice related and that at least I can still breath without a tube. Mind you, my goiter was not as half as big as this woman's. Things to watch out for:

1. Calcium complications from a thyroid surgery can lead to the organs seizing including the heart even days after the surgery has been completed.

2. The lump must be sent for pathology testing to check whether its a benign lump or it is cancerous. If its is cancerous,she needs to under go further treatment. Fingers crossed it is benign.

3.. She will be placed on supplements to do what the Thyroid does in the body, without supplements to replace thyroid function, lethargy , depression and eventually death could occur.

Please someone that is on ground should discuss the risks of the surgery with her surgical team so that she is monitored like a hawk. Please make sure that the surgeon has done this procedure before many times. This goitre cannot be less than 20cm across so its a major surgery.
Also if she can be referred to an endocrinologist to help her stabilize the hormones for the first few months.

I don't mean to sound gloomy but I have found that people tend to trivalize goiters that its not a major issue...it can be.

Now I have said all these to indicate that we may need to contribute more than the initial surgery cost so the organizers of this rescue effort can bear this in mind.

I really wish her the best and I'll send my kobo kobo as soon as I know where to send it.




Please Please Please, this is very very important. yodiyokun you have done so well with this comment. Your concerns are worth more than 10k i must confess. Please we must all not get carried away with donations alone, RECALL WE LOST ONE OF OUT TeHN RECIPIENTS (Perx) EARLY LAST YEAR, A FEW DAYS AFTER SURGERY, not sure what happened but i believe this information can go a long way.

Honorable volunteers I suggest YOU PRINT YODIYKOUN's COMMENTS QUOTED HERE for discussions with the doctor/surgeon/specialist!!!!

I hope somebody listens.

GOITER can sure be a tricky one.

Many thanks Cynthia for this post.

This is my second time reading it, each time i witness those lifeless bodies, i run back home and hit google to see if there are plans to build more bridges on the axis.

Being Christian doesn't automatically make you literate

Like many around these shores, you may be able to read all the text in the bible but as a result of illiteracy, cannot assimilate any meanings

I always recommend reading the simplest version -Good News, clear and unambiguous

Here is what the word says- (I still believe some require translation in their local dialects)

SIRACH 38 1-9[/b]

Give doctors the honor they deserve, for the Lord gave them their work to do.[a] 2 Their skill came from the Most High, and kings reward them for it. 3 Their knowledge gives them a position of importance, [b]and powerful people hold them in high regard.


4 The Lord created medicines from the earth, and a sensible person will not hesitate to use them[/size]. 5 Didn't a tree once make bitter water fit to drink, so that the Lord's power[b] might be known? 6 He gave medical knowledge to human beings, so that we would praise him for the miracles he performs. 7-8 The druggist mixes these medicines, and the doctor will use them to cure diseases and ease pain. There is no end to the activities of the Lord, who gives health to the people of the world.
Food / Re: Nestlé Responds To Golden Morn Discussion by Labelle(f): 7:18pm On Oct 22, 2012
obasijoy: Myson eats Golden morn and I will continue to give him that. My mind tells me that Nestle people are looking for way to promote high demand of Cerelac. Since the price of cerelac increase to almost #2000. A lot of parent are now going for golden morn since it's affordable. How many parent will say that golden morn is not good on his kids health. My son takes it every day and its very good on him. Nestle you guys should reduce the price of cerelac. The big tin is almost #2000 and it doesn't even last up to a week. I'm sure many of us were fed with golden morn and we are still bouncing till now. REDUCE THE PRICE OF CERELAC, YOU WILL SEE WE PARENTS RUSHING BACK TO IT.

@Obasijoy,

You are 100% correct on this, I have been scrolling through comments to see if some some folks would figure this out.

HAHHAA, kudos, You are very well on point.

Sales drop in Cerelac and Nutried may have sparked the sudden 'precautionary insert'. They have basically become premium/luxury infant lines as the prices are not pocket friendly.

At my age i still eat all 3 (Cerelac, Nutriend and GoldenMorn) and I can tell you that Nutriend and Goldenmorn are basically the SAME, flake for flake!

Cerelac on the other hand is loaded with milk and sugar, hence more tasty and lovely for my tummy. smiley
