A Brief Summary of JAMB Recommended Novel 2022

Mr. Esquire’s arrival is awaited by a family of six. While they wait, Bint recounts her interaction with her overbearing Social Studies instructor, Mallam Salihu, who is notorious for acting as though he knows a little more about every subject by frequently asking questions that are unrelated to the topic at hand.

Bint describes how she handled a similar situation in such a way that the instructor was taken aback by the applauding and laughter of the other students.

Ummi is ecstatic with her daughter, particularly Bint’s astute response to challenges, and she joins in the conversation just as Omar enthusiastically announces his acceptance to Ahmadu Bello University to study law.

Like the family gathers to celebrate Omar’s victory, Omar brags about his accomplishment and takes pleasure in the fact that he was able to get admittance alone by conquering examination hurdles and a variety of other entry processes.
