Observation

This was a very popular question and many attempted it but performed poorly.  The candidates were required to trace the background of Jaja of Opobo and Nana of Itsekiri, their business acumen, the rivalry between the houses, their determination to maintain their middleman position in their areas, how to prevent the incursion of the British and other foreign traders, their confrontation with the British, their defeat and expulsion, their exile and eventual freedom; the manner of their death.
