    Please I know this does not relate to this but it seems like the only way I can get your attention. LOL.
    The anti-corruption essay deadline is today and I can not submit because it keeps bouncing back. What do I do?

    • Iman,

      That’s unfortunate. I wish I could help but there’s nothing I can do. Ensure the email you sent it to is correct. You may try another email provider. I know someone who has successfully submitted. So you may try it again.
