+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ SECTION A (4)
Aloho comes in contact with her secondary school
mate, Ochuole, who promises to secure a job for
her by speaking with the Honourable Minister of
External Relations, Chief Haladu Ade-Amaka, on her
behalf. Ochuole keeps to her promise, and Aloho is offered a job as one of Chief’s protocol officers, not
knowing that the job requires more than what she
thinks. She is also unaware of the fact that Ochuole
is being used by Chief to perpetrate criminal
activities, especially drug trafficking. As regards
this, Madam Hoha is not left out as her restaurant/ hotel is the hideout for Chief’s criminal activities. As
one of her hidden job descriptions, Aloho is given a
package containing hard drugs to deliver in the
United States of America. Having no idea of what is
contained in the package, Aloho accepts the
package from Chief Ade-Amaka wholeheartedly and subsequently gets arrested at the airport by
drug law enforcement officers. Aloho is later
released by the Judge and the prosecutors after
collecting a huge sum of money from Chief. Upon
her release, she discovers that she is pregnant by
Chief and decides to abort the pregnancy after feeling being humiliated for having been used by
Ochuole and Chief Ade-Amaka. Unfortunately, after
several futile attempts to abort the pregnancy,
Aloho dies after giving birth to the child. Ogeyi
Ogar, Aloho’s true friend (whose pieces of advice
she had turned down) is bent on having all those who used her friend punished. As a result, she
reports Chief to the police. After an investigation
initiated by ACP Yakubu and a careful examination
of the legal issues in the illegal activities of Chief
Ade-Amaka by the Judge of the Wasa High Court of
Justice, Chief Ade-Amaka and his accomplices are found guilty. In the end, justice prevails as the all
the corrupt public officers in the play have a harvest
of the corrupt practices they’ve sown for years.
The character and role of Mrs. Johnson appears
mostly for comic relief. She is a flat caricature of the
nosy, jealous neighbor. However, Hansberry
employs the Mrs. Johnson character in order to
point out the explosive realities that await the Youngers for being the first blacks to move into
Clybourne Park. Mrs. Johnson is insensitive and
unkind, asking indelicate, overly nosy questions. At
one point, she practically says outright that she is
hoping that the Youngers’ new house will be
bombed. Although her warnings are about a very real danger to the Youngers, Mrs. Johnson’s
manner is so offensive that she appears almost
ludicrous. In other words Mrs Johnson also help
shave the ill treatment melted out to the coloured
race by the white westerners she brings in a copy
of newspaper which comes the report of a bomb being detonated in the territory of the negroes and
which leads to the death of a number of negroes.
She is the character through whom the reader get
to know that only beneatha has a little of formal
education. She also goes an insight into the nature
of the jobs available for the negroes. the negrose are never satisfied with their jobs.
Walter comes up with an idea to make his situation
better. He dreams of opening a liquor store with
one of his friends, because he feels it will allow him to make enough money to provide for the family
and give him the power to be his own boss. When Walter’s father dies and leaves behind a
$10,000 life insurance check, he sees it as his
chance to invest in the liquor store. The entire
family is against the liquor store for different
reasons. Walter’s mother is very religious and finds
the idea of a liquor store to be sinful. His wife and sister simply don’t believe his friend can be trusted. Since Walter’s mother is in control of the insurance
check, she initially refuses to give him the money to
invest in the liquor store. Instead, she decides to use a chunk of it as a down
payment for a house in a white neighborhood. This
decision completely infuriates Walter. Feeling
depressed because his family isn’t supporting his
dream, Walter refuses to go to work and even stays
out drinking for three days straight. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
The poet’s selected use of words is highly
contributory to the success of the poem. As a poem
whose metaphorical import is very important to it’s
appreciation, some words and phrases appear
deliberately and and appropriately employed to help the effective delivery of its message. Some
examples include “giant” sabre toothed, “shudder
home”, “bayonets of tribulation”, “unceasing
disaster” and so on. The word giant is deployed to
underscore the enormity of size and might of the
state. In a way, the word also provides suggestive information about the setting of the poem. It hints
at the spar setting being Nigeria because Nigeria is
often referred to as “the giant of Africa” due to the
population size. The phrase “sabre-toothed” recalls
a kind of tiger with sword-like teeth, which is
meant to point at the possible effect of a bite or attack from such an animal or its metaphorical
referent. While the phrase “bayonets of tribulation”
similarly draws attention to the sharp-edged form
of violence and other challenges faced by the
commoners, “shudders home” comments on their
intimidation. The word “unceasing” in “unceasing disaster” clearly emphasizes the despair attending
the situation. The title word “Ambush” on its part,
suggests the idea that the victims of the realities in
the land are either caught unawares or the
perpetrators carefully planned carry out their
design as wished. The choice of animals used as metaphors for the land is also carefully made to
reflect the three main natural abodes of animals viz:
land, sky and water. This suggests a total control of
every space by the metaphorical referents.
(10) The poet in the peom is not happy With what is
going on his land but as an individual he has no
power over what is going on in the society. He does
not want to lose completely so he want something
to be done about the old ways so that they will not
be lost completely. He is pleading with the new generation to accommodate the old ways of life
while behaving in the new norms he pleaded that
the old culture be accommodate into the new
culture so that they can interprets and practice the
culture side by side. In doing this the poet doest
condemn the new ways but he suggested that we should not abandon our ancestral culture practice
and that instead of abandoning them we should
accommodate both and blend together. He posit
thus ” sew the old days for us, our fathers that we
can wear them under our new garment… Make our
self new flags and anthems while we left high the banner of our land.
George Herbert (1593-1633) Said After God made
this universe, he gathered all the blessings of the
world in a glass and distributed them to the human
beings one after another. First, he gave the
strength, therefore human became strong enough to survive. One by one, god gave them the beauty,
wisdom, honor, pleasure and many other
blessings. When almost all was gone, God kept
‘rest’ at the bottom of the glass, thinking that ‘both
should losers be’ if the ‘rest’ is given. When they get
all they want, in the sense of sufficiency, they may forget God. On one hand, when human beings get
rest, they forget god and take a rest. As a result,
god will lose the love and affection of human
beings. On the other hand, when rest is given,
people will lose strength, honor, wisdom and
beauty and all other human capacities. God knows the man is by birth prone to lethargy. They will get
rest at the cost of the progress. Progress and the
rest never come together. We get one losing the
other. God is sure that man will only praise the
things God has given to them not the god himself.
Mankind will lose their essence, get tired and wander in search of rest. In the concluding part of the poem, Herbert gives
two reasons behind human going to god. First,
they will go to God out of the goodness, faith or
divine emotions and inborn loyalty for him.
Secondly, if they do not go to god out of the first
cause, they will go to him when they are tired. Weariness takes human beings to the shadow of
god. So, the God decides to keep the mankind
away from the rest so as to make him feel the
eternal rest can only be found in God. For the sake
of the rest, at least man will remember to god and
go to him for his love and rest. The repining restlessness or the discontentment with the worldly
things will finally lead a man to god. He wanted
man to discover the real rest only in Him. He alone
can truly give the mankind the rest they frantically

The image of the caged bird was used as a
metaphorical expression to represent the
classroom of which the bird was the bird that was
caged. The poet used the expression to imply that the buy was like a bird that was caged and denied
it’s freedom to move around to do what it likes. The
image of the caged bird explain the experiences of
the boy. He hacked the freedom he desires and he
is restricted to a certain schedule. The poet
compares formal education as a prison yard and simplifies this by comparing the school system as a
sort of a birds in a cage. Birds are born to enjoy
flying gleefully and freely and perching on trees as
they sing delightful sings/tones. The restricted bird
in a cage looses all of these. Similarly, in the school
system where children are restricted and have no chance to make fun with the natural environment
as they would naturally want is nothing better than
a cage bird. Their youthful life destroyed by fear
and has no choice other than to drop their tender
wings in total lamentation.
