JAMB Introduces New Novel For 2017 UTME Candidates “In Dependence”

The In dependence novel is written by a Nigerian named SARAH LADIPO MANYINKA who was born in Ibadan (South West Nigeria) in the late 1930s.

“In Dependence” tells the story of Tayo Ajayi, a Nigerian man who gets a scholarship to study at Oxford in the 1960s, and Vanessa Richardson, the daughter of an ex-colonial officer. Tayo meets and falls in love with Vanessa Richardson, a British colonial officer’s daughter. And they negotiate their relationship against a background of race and racism.

While it is a story of their love which spans from 1963 to 1998, it’s way more than that. It’s also a story about Nigeria, its independence and the changes that occur in the country post-independence – the Biafran war, the first coup and the numerous counter-coups, military dictatorships, the brief return to civilian rule, exile of Nigerians, and towards the end of the book the eventual return to democracy. There are also issues of race, racism and cultural differences.
