Chapter 21

Tayo sat in his armchair with his eyes closed and feet resting on his leather pouffe as he listened to Coltrane’s Love Supreme. He looked forward to Sunday mornings when the house was quiet and he could reflect in peace. He stood up and walked to the bookshelf in search of an exemplary text. Last week his publishers had phoned to congratulate him on his manuscript. They were planning a sizeable print run of his history of Nigeria, the largest, they said, of any third-world history book, and naturally he felt pleased. All that remained to be written was the preface, but what did one say in a preface? He flipped through several books and then traced his finger along the mahogany bookshelf in search of one of his favourites, and there it was: The Open Society and its Enemies. He wondered how often a preface was overlooked in a reader’s eagerness to hurry on and read the rest of the book. And here was Popper’s preface, two in fact. Tayo nodded to himself, dwelling for a moment on the line that spoke of the need to break from the customary deference shown to great men. He reached for pen and paper and carried the books to his desk.

For years now, Tayo had been writing about Nigeria’s problems. He believed that greed and mismanagement were the root causes of oil corruption and a broken civil service. He also believed that the West, through the World Bank in particular, exacerbated his country’s problems, but he was cautious with this argument knowing its potential to detract from what could be done at home. He was also determined never to treat Nigeria’s problems as insurmountable and in 1984, when others were saying that the country’s many cultures and ethnic groups were never meant to co-exist, Tayo disagreed. He had no patience for the afro-pessimists, whom he saw as lending credence to the many racist historians of Africa. Instead, he maintained that in spite of his country’s numerous coups and despots, events could still change for the better. History, as Popper argued, was not deterministic. Tayo decided to acknowledge him in his preface, alongside colleagues and friends, not forgetting family of course.

Tayo decided to acknowledge him in his preface, alongside colleagues and friends, not forgetting family of course.

The book would be dedicated to Vanessa, and to his father. To his father, for being a tireless civil servant in pursuit of a better Nigeria. Tayo shifted in his chair, sensing that something had fallen from his trouser pocket. He reached down, expecting to retrieve pound notes, but instead found a sheet of paper in his wife’s handwriting. It was yesterday’s shopping list, scribbled on medical paper advertising an unpronounceable medication. ‘Wretched pharmaceutical companies,’ he muttered to himself. Wouldn’t it be better if companies handed out free medicines instead of useless bits of paper promoting fancy, experimental drugs? This was yet another of Nigeria’s problems — the questionable role of multinationals. He read the list:

Maggi cubes

Corn oil (large size)

Tomato puree

Treetops squash (mango or lemon)

Ribena

Bournvita

Lipton’s tea

Quaker oats

Margarine (Flora)

Babybel Dutch cheeses (pick coldest)

Dairylea
