Question 8

Highlight any six rights enjoyed by the citizens in French West Africa under the policy of Assimilation.


This question was not popular with the candidates. The few that attempted it failed to understand the demands of the question. Some other candidates mixed up the two policies of assimilation and association while others went as far as discussing indirect rule. The overall candidates' performance in the question was poor.
In order to score high marks in this question, candidates were expected to highlight some of the following rights:
being legal citizens of France;
they could marry French citizens;
payment of a fixed tax and issuance of receipt;
free from forced labour; .
voted to French Chamber of Deputies, etc.
