Revelation of decadence in Nigerian tertiary institutions

By Remilekun Oladokun

 



CITATION is notably one of the best movies released so far as it tops the Netflix rated in Nigeria and other countries, which was officially released on November 6th 2020. The movie centers on the educational issues facing most female students on different college campuses in Nigeria. The movie ‘Citation’ is directed by Kunle Afolayan and written by Tunde Babalola with the duration of 2hrs 31mins starring Jimmy Jean Louis, Temi Otedola, Ini Edo, Joke Silva, Adjetey Anang, Gabriel Afolayan, Sadiq Dada, Ray Reboul, Bukunmi Oluwashina, Yomi Fash Lanso, Prof. Ibukun Awosika, and Seun Kuti (cameo appearance).

The movie starts with a conversation between an undergraduate student (Rachel) and a Professor (Dr. Gillow) who in exchange to change her grades demands sex.



In the bid to expose the Professor, she sets him up with the help of her boyfriend and other friends, this resulted in the Professor being hit by an oncoming vehicle while trying to escape public humiliation. The students involved faced the tribunal and were expelled from the school.

Two years after the above incident, Moremi Oluwa, a brilliant postgraduate student at Obafemi Awolowo University takes on the fight against sexual assault when she reports the popular Professor Lucien N’Dyare for attempted rape to the tribunal. The relationship between Moremi and the professor began when he was having a problem driving a manual car as he is not familiar with sticks (manual gear) and she offered to teach him. Unknowingly to her, the professor was a professional at driving manual cars. That previous gesture led to a sexual assault gradually.

Temi Otedola plays the role of Moremi Oluwa the leading character, as Jimmy Jean Louis played the role of Professor Lucien N’Dyare whose intentions and bad acts weren’t revealed at first as he was hiding under the shell of being a popular professor. The movie ‘Citation’ explains the theme of sexual assault and sex for grades which most Nigerian female students fall victims of. The passion and dedication of Moremi to reveal the Professor even after her education was at stake is one every female should emulate.

Meanwhile, Moremi’s romantic relationship with Medical student Koyejo (Gabriel Afolayan) became messy after he saw her in the car with the Professor.

He advised her to be careful as he suspects the Professor but Moremi was adamant. The conversation between the two created a gap between them as Koyejo refuses to pick her calls and reply to any of her messages while she was on a trip to Cape Verde with the Professor and other of her course mate.

The movie director Kunle Afolayan made use of two techniques; the flashback and the flashforward. The flashback serves the purpose of interrupting the chronological order of the main narrative to take a reader back to the past events in a character’s life while the flashforward serves the purpose of revealing significant parts of the story that have not yet occurred, but soon will in greater details. The movie flashback ends in Professor N’Dyare’s house after an Easter a house party where he attempted to rape her.

Moremi’s fight to save Education after reporting to the panel about the sexual incident was seeming fruitless as Professor N’Dyare backed every evidence with his well-crafted lies seems convincing. The drama shows how easy it is for a victim to feel shame, despite the attempt to bring justice. Citation lead characters are flawless, and the protagonist is a sophisticated, beautiful, affluent, brainy moral girl only trying to get an education. Apart from the theme of sexual assault, the movie also appreciated the culture, tradition, and music of African countries.

The Citation movie is recommended for everyone as relationships are formed, friendships broken, trust betrayed, secrets revealed and as the hunter becomes the hunted.
