Nigerian journalist, Kiki Mordi just got her first Emmy nomination. The 29-year-old exposed the rot in West African universities when she went undercover to a number of tertiary institutions in Nigeria and Ghana.
The BBC Africa Eye documentary captured lecturers demanding sex for grades. A particular lecturer in UNILAG propositioned Kiki, who he thought was a prospective student, for sex so as to help her gain admission into the institution.
The documentary started a conversation about the prevalent issue of sex for grades in Nigerian universities and prompted a 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.
Also, the Nigerian Senate re-introduced the anti-sexual harassment bill on October 9, 2019, in response to the documentary.
Kiki has received recognition for her work within and outside Nigeria and it just earned her an Emmy nomination in the News & Current Affairs category.
Kiki shared the news to Twitter and congratulations have been pouring in.
