Summary of “In Dependence” JAMB New BookFor 2017 UTME Candidates

Summary of “In Dependence” JAMB New Book

For 2017 UTME Candidates.

It is no longer news that 2017 UTME candidates will be tested

on the book “In Dependence” by Sarah Ladipo Manyika.

Irrespective of your course of study or method of testing, you

will be tested on this book.

The book is to be given to candidates after paying for the

2017 UTME registration.

However, for most candidates who would prefer a soft copy of

the book. Here is a summary of the book based on a review





Tayo Ajayi, a Nigerian, and Vanessa Richardson, an English

lady, had their affair boiling when it began, however as

circumstances have been meant to intervene, the connection

went sore and it appeared nothing may ever carry them


The book (In dependence) has characters that behaved in like-

patterns, like within the case of Tayo’s pal, Yusuf, who had

dated tons of white English women.

He (Yusuf) ended up marrying a Nigerian Lady as predicted

(Yusuf knew what he needed and appeared to get it).

Tayo additionally ended up the identical method in as a lot as

his affair with Vanessa Richardson had been gleaming, though

he had been out of the error of getting a younger lady (Miriam)


And speaking of sample, the novel’s (In dependence) starting

had opened up introducing Tayo’s affair with Christine, a

Nigerian Igbo woman. One would suppose that Manyika needed

to finish Tayo’s relationship with Christine for the sake of

bringing in Vanessa into Tayo’s life, however nonetheless, Tayo

needed to find yourself marrying Miriam. And nonetheless the

wedding failed, giving in to the acquainted sample.

Miriam in Manyika’s novel (In dependence) represented the

breeds of the Nigerians that may all the time run away to

reside overseas because of the collapsing picture of their

dwelling nation.

Miriam went away together with her daughter leaving Tayo

behind. In as a lot as she persuaded Tayo, he wouldn’t go. She

didn’t like an inconveniencing life. She needed the perfect life

for her daughter.

Tayo, on the opposite facet represented the crude breeds of

Nigerians that felt dwelling was dwelling despite the fact that

the nation was boiling in corruption. In as a lot because the

failure of the nation stared firmly at his face with daggers, he

selected to remain.

In direction of the late pages of the novel he needed to depart

the nation underneath threatening circumstances towards his

life from the ruling navy regime.

The complete novel is informed from the great days of

Nigeria’s independence down into the nineties. I applaud

Manyika’s ink, right here. In as a lot because the setting of this

novel floated by way of England, Senegal, USA, and France, she

was ready to make use of her third eye to attract out Nigeria’s

journey into the more serious lanes of corruption, and


Religion is one other situation that Manyika (In dependence)

handled. It didn’t matter to her if one was a Muslim or


Studying by way of this novel, one couldn’t inform if Tayo got

here from a Muslim or Christian household however we did

know he embraced extra of the Christian religion. She didn’t

level out the difficulties of inter-religious marriages within the

novel (In dependence), however centred extra on the difficulties

of interracial marriage.

Throughout Tayo’s life as an element time lecturer in Sans

Francisco, the creator used a scene to unbolt some deeper

points of racism.

She identified the racist ties between the African American and

the pure African. These points she raised apply in all places

even inside Nigerians.

A Yoruba would check with an Igbo as a grasping cash monger

and doubtful monster, and in flip the Igbo would check with the

Yoruba as a unclean, loquacious and silly character who spend

all he earns on events and alcohol. It needed to be understood

that racism was one these existences that may reside for a

very long time so far as misunderstanding between folks


I captured traces which are coated with humour on this novel,

however might be referred to as racial remarks. Younger black

Yusuf got here clear in his dialog with Tayo. He mentioned

white ladies have been for intercourse treats whereas black

ladies have been for respectable relationships that would result

in marriage. He added white lady regarded so previous when

she turned thirty.

The worst racist on this e-book (In dependence) is Vanessa’s

father who was a one time colonial grasp in Nigeria earlier than


He was towards Tayo marrying his daughter, and had refused

to just accept Vanessa’s adopted half-cast son. He appeared

extra racial towards half-casts earlier within the novel (In

dependence) confronting Tayo about his fears for a half-cast

grandchild. It was later understood that his hatred for the

blacks was consequently of an affair his spouse had with a

black man through the colonial period.

Manyika, whose image reveals she is probably half-cast, was

capable of make a degree right here. She drew a distinction

between being black and being a half-cast (brown). This could

have been fairly a storm for her to jot down about as a result

of of the racial wind towards the brown folks residing in whitely

dominated areas. In distinction to a pure black nation, half-

casts are seen lovely which Manyika didn’t level out. In reality

within the black continent, the standard black man could really

feel inferior to a half-cast.

Manyika was additionally capable of painting the polemic

assault Nigerians obtain from all over the world nowadays. She

didn’t carry this to print however the picture was represented,

and I needed to determine it out. I can say it clouds across the

ache felt every time an IELTS or TOEFL examination is required

earlier than a Nigerian may research overseas. This doesn’t

exclude a masters’ diploma. Does the world suppose Nigerians

converse Latin or Greek or some sort of language referred to as


‘I said I haven’t heard you converse Nigerian,’ Joyce says.

Joyce is one of Manyika’s English characters. And I like the

way in which Yusuf replies this. ‘Nobody speaks Nigerian, you

daft thing,’.

A coincidence on this novel which I refuse to just accept was

the scene during which Vanessa had simply come throughout

one of her finest music, Hugh Maskela, a music that reminded

her of Nelson Mandela and on the same day, not even up to

two hours if I could rightly predict, her white husband is

presenting her with ‘Long Walk to Freedom’, Nelson Mandela’s


What a coincidence! I additionally don’t embrace the truth that

Manyika noticed hope for Nigeria by way of the eyes of Tayo

solely when Abacha died. There are nonetheless Abacha

loyalists in Nigeria as we speak who will discover this

offending. She ought to have saved the road in a riddle.

Vanessa did meet with Tayo on the finish of the novel,

nevertheless it was laborious to foretell if in any respect a love

relationship was ignited between them. Vanessa was

nonetheless married, however Tayo wasn’t. Manyika maintained

a non-adulterous plight between the 2 right here. The happy-

ending-formula which most romance writers adapt was by

some means blurring within the novel.
