We will meet to discuss Chinua Achebe's Protected content entitled A Man of the People. This satirical novel is a story told by the young and educated narrator, Odili, on his conflict with Chief Nanga, his former teacher who enters a career in politics in an unnamed modern African country. Odili represents the changing younger generation; Nanga represents the traditional customs of Nigeria. The story follows the country as it navigates a path between violence and corruption.
