I Know many Nigeria youths do not know who is Humphrey Nwosu , that's why they scrap History out of secondary and Primary School.

Prof. Humphrey Nwosu should be celebrated more than anyone else on June 12. He deserves more accolades and should have received a national honour if not that he is a Biafran. He was the Electoral Commission Chairman that boldly and bravely Announced the election results despite all the death threats by Nigeria Army of Ibrahim Babangida, He stood his ground even at gunpoint and went ahead to announce the results.

They didn't celebrate him because he is IGBO Biafran, but they honour the likes of Prof Mahmood Yakubu, Prof Jega that know how to Rig elections.

University of Nigeria, Nsukka.

He also served as chairman of a Federal Technical Committee on the application of Civil Service Reforms in the local government service.

He was appointed FEDECO chairman in 1989 after his predecessor (and former mentor) Eme Awa resigned due to a disagreement with Ibrahim Babangida.
Prof. Nwosu conducted the June 12, 1993, election, which was seen as the freest and fairest election to have been conducted in Nigeria till date, in which Chief Moshood Abiola was presumed to have won. Nwosu's commission introduced the novel Option A4 voting system and the Open ballot system.

Nwosu had released many of the election results when he was ordered to stop further announcement by the military regime.
