A documentary which exposed the decay in West African universities, produced by Nigerian journalist, Kiki Mordi had just got her first Emmy nomination.
Kiki’s work has received recognition within and outside Nigeria and it has just earned her an Emmy nomination in the News & Current Affairs category.
The BBC Africa Eye documentary shows lecturers as they demanded for sex in exchange for good grades. The 29 year old journalist had gone undercover to a number of tertiary institutions both in Nigeria and Ghana.
One of the most trended segment of the documentary was the one of a particular lecturer in UNILAG who propositioned Kiki, whom he assumed to be a prospective student, for sex so as to help her secure admission into the institution.
The documentary sparked up a conversation about the prevalent issue of sex for grades in Nigerian universities, which in return prompted the former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar and a former Senate President of Nigeria, Bukola Saraki to call on the Nigerian Government to take immediate action against sexual harassment in Nigerian Universities.
In response to the documentary, the Nigerian Senate re-introduced the anti-sexual harassment bill on October 9, 2019.
