Sample of ABU Post UTME Past Questions and Answers

Passage 1
The privilege of blackening one’s stool is not granted to every dead chief or queen-mother without conditions. The honour is merited only on the fulfilment of certain conditions on the part of the occupant of a stool. The blackening of a king’s stool is regarded as the greatest honour that could be conferred on a ruler; thus in many Akan states, only the stools of kings who proved to be true leaders are blackened.

No royal person’s stool is reserved unless he died while still a ruler. A destooled chief is the last person whose memory anybody wants to keep fresh. He must have broken a taboo or committed a serious crime to merit his degradation. He may have committed adultery with his servants’ wives; he may have bought and sold slaves, who are considered heirlooms to the stool; he may have used the oath unreasonably; he may have cursed people. All these crimes can deprive a chief of his regal powers. Once this happens, he becomes, in the eyes of the people, more insignificant than a commoner who has no right whatever to be a chief.
However, a chief may ‘die on the stool’, and yet not have his stool blackened. This is so because one must die a ‘good death.

Sudden death through an accident destroys the right to have one’s stool blackened. So does death through an unusual disease like leprosy, lunacy, epilepsy and dropsy — which, if discovered in time, are causes for destoolment. The only exception here is death in a war which magnifies one’s fame and dignity. But even here, if it is found out that one fell when retreating, or running away, from the enemy, one is regarded as a treacherous and infamous leader who should be erased from all historical memory. A chief who suffered from an unclean disease, but got cured before dying, is said to have been engaged in a personal difficult war with the disease and emerged triumphantly. Such a chief is worthy of respect. Suicide is, perhaps, one of the worst deaths a chief could undergo. Under no condition will the stool of a ruler who takes his own life, or is killed by a ‘fetish’ be consecrated.
