Government corruption is a thread woven in this chapter. Military leadership has taken over the country following a coup. There is no democracy and the government does not respect the rights of the people. The government controls the university, forcing salary freezes. Access to fuel and food in Nsukka is limited. Even medical centers are on strike. Daily life is a struggle. Even Papa’s business is suffering in this climate. Soldiers storm the new offices of the Standard. Threats of violence are used to intimidate people into order.People are afraid to deal with Papa in business.
