Comrade Kabiru Dakata

A movement titled "Movement Against Corruption in Tertiary Institutions (MACTI)" was formed at the end of a Stakeholders Meeting to develop a strategy to end all forms of students extortion in Tertiary institutions. The meeting was conveyed by the Centre for Awareness on Justice and Accountability- CAJA and attended by present and former students leaders, bloggers, media men, CSOs and some progressive lecturers.
It was unanimously agreed by all the Stakeholders that despite the banning of sale of handouts in the Tertiary institutions, the illegal practice is still going on in our institutions of higher learning and the practice is affecting the academic performance of innocent students who cannot afford such handouts as marks are awarded to students for just paying for the handouts or lecture guides as some may call it. Other forms of extortion discussed at the meeting include the money for marks, sex for marks, etc.
The movement also developed a planned to visit heads of Tertiary institutions in Kano State, relevant anticorruption agencies, sensitize students, engage in traditional and social media campaign, etc.
CAJA is currently implementing an anticorruption project titled " Youth Partcipation in the fight Against Corruption (Y-PAC)" which is being led by Youth Alive Foundation (YAF) and founded by DFID.
You are all invited to join our campaign
