PLOT/SUMMARY,CHARACTERIZATION,SETTINGS,POINT OF VIEW,THEMES AND TRIVIA BY O.O.ODUMOSU EX-PROPRIETOR,MASON COLLEGE FESTAC TOWN (O8O33010872)

PART TWO…CHARACTERIZATION

EFUA

Efua, tall and slender with large eyes and long eyelashes. She was further described as a delicate and mysterious beauty. She was desired by the boys in her school. They wanted her as a girlfriend. When that looked impossible they wanted to dance with her but she eventually agreed to dance with Deji because he looked most harmless.

The implication of all these is that in most schools there are subterranean levels of relationships usually instigated, accepted or rejected by and amongst students which are mostly not known to school management.

Perhaps it was the intension of the author to portray this and at the same time show why many innocent and beautiful girls find it difficult to pay attention to their studies.

Efua having gone through a girls-only school up to SS3 class had imbibed some lady-like charms and could display good manners when she chose .During discussions with school management she turned part of it on like a tap when she thought necessary.

However, it is not clear whether she was being factual or ironic. One may also want to deduce that perhaps the author was implying that issues of etiquette, poise, and other public mannerisms are usually considered more seriously at schools that are girls-only.

EFUA CONTD.

Nene saw her as an intelligent student because she belonged to the science class. But we later got to know Efua the poet , letter-writer and singer. In her former school she was the Editor of the school’s Magazine .She also showed signs of being an excellent public-debater and her school cert result confirmed that Nene’s initial disposition towards her was right.

Can we therefore deduce that the background of a student does not determine academic ability or performance in school? No, we may not. In fact it is doubtful if the author intended to say so. Generally speaking Efua’s case may be regarded as an exception to the rule in an opposite direction.The rule being that a student’s background or state of home affairs can affect performance in school negatively.

One also need distinguish between ability to sing, write poems and essays and academic ability in subjects like Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. The former may be a result of innate talent like the ability of Ansa to draw and paint while the latter determines a student’s overall results in WAEC exams. Fortunately Efua only happened by chance to have been a combo of both.

She was also bold and not prepared to suffer fools gladly. Whether student or staff they were all the same to her. She had the intellect and presence of mind to present her points clearly without holding much back. During the brouhaha about her so-called affairs with Miss Novi she held her ground without fearing suspension. Also when she felt Jimi needed to be defended she did so with all her might and was instrumental towards unraveling of the case and dropping of charges by the school and police. This might be a virtue the author wants students to uphold. It also seems like a recurring theme by the author that schools ought to listen to their students and not shut them down carelessly.

Efua had excellent personal hygiene standards. She was also well organized and methodical. Her looks and her bedroom showed these. But her state of mind still kept certain dark secrets we will remind ourselves of later.

The import of this is that we can’t really judge a book by its cover. Each student or individual we meet along the way may not be exactly what they look like and we need to be more circumspect especially in dealing with students and children.

In her former school she was active in a student’s club known as Angels of Mercy Club and when she eventually met Miss Novi at her new school she felt she was in heaven because of the latter’s love for social work relating to women issues and children’s rights. She joined Miss Novi in campaigns relating to motherless babies and Teens against HIV. Perhaps her personal experiences at home accounted for deep love for these issues but she took them to heart and Miss Novi told her she had the “face of an angel”. This was perhaps the ultimate in terms of any woman or man appreciating and complementing her without wanting to befriend her. This led her to infatuation for Miss Novi and her subsequent diary entries of “love”. Though her expressed feelings eventually led to her suspension her clearance later looks justified. The incident also shows how important it is to appreciate and complement students or children when they do well.

But unfortunately for Efua her upbringing and experiences also turned her cold and icy. Within her were what could be described as dark secrets mainly developed at home and perhaps from former school..In fact she too said “there is so much evil in this world” which seem to be a tell-all of what she had been through. By the time she got to Forcados High, her social skills were at the lowest ebb leading to her caricature as “snooty” or “the witch”.
