1. What does Odili wish the people could see about Chief Nanga?

Odili wishes that the people could see that Chief Nanga is a corrupt politician who seeks only his own enrichment and political advancement. He has the appearance of a man of the people, and is very charismatic, but uses such traits to his own personal advantage.

2. What series of events leads up to Odili's disillusionment with the POP.?

In 1960, a slump in the international coffee market greatly damages Nigeria's economy. The Minister of Finance, an economist with a Ph.D. in public finance, presents a plan, supported by two-thirds of the Cabinet, to the Prime Minister which would save the economy but likely make the Prime Minister unpopular for re-election. The Prime Minister, afraid to lose his power, instead orders the National Bank to print 15 million pounds and denounces the members of his Cabinet who supported the Minister of Finance as conspirators attempting to ruin the country. The corrupt media reinforces the Prime Minister's story and the good men are publicly disgraced.
