Igbos are marginalised – Victor Umeh

The Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District,
Chief Victor Umeh has faulted the planned honouring of June 12
heroes without the then National Electoral Commission (NEC)
Chairman, Prof. Humphrey Nwosu.
He said that Nwosu was the actual hero of the 1993 general
election.
Speaking to newsmen in Awka, Senator Umeh commended
President Muhammadu Buhari for conferring honour on MKO
Abiola, his running mate Babagana Kingibe and Gani Fawehinmi.
However, he lamented the marginalisation and injustice on Igbos
by not recognising Professor Humphrey Nwosu, the man who took
the risk to ensure the election held in the freest and fairest manner
ever and declared the result.
He stressed that Nwosu should be recognised among the heroes of
June 12.
“Professor Humphrey Nwosu conducted the 1993 elections and
defiled all manner of pressures. He was also in the process of
announcing the results of that election when the soldiers stormed
his office and whisked him away with the results of the election.
