Observation

This question was popular among the candidates.  However, while many of the candidates who attempted the question recognized the factors that influenced the formation of centralized states, only a few of them could
discuss meaningfully how those factors led to such development.  To score high marks in the question, the candidates were expected to highlight the following factors:

  • favourable geographical locations;
  • mineral deposits such as gold, salt, iron, etc;
  • strategic commercial locations e.g. Kano, Lagos;
  • population concentration;
  • dynamic leadership, etc
