June 12 election chairman Nwosu: Why I Can't Attend MKO Abiola Investiture Today




The Chairman of the defunct National Electoral Commission, Prof. Humphrey Nwosu, has announced that he will not be able to attend the posthumous investiture of the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, the late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, as the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic scheduled for Tuesday (today).
The Federal Government had invited Nwosu and key stakeholders in the struggle for the revalidation of the election to the event during which the late human rights activist, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, will also be honoured posthumously with the Grand Commander of the Order of Niger alongside Abiola’s running mate, Babagana Kingibe.

But Nwosu regretted that he would not be able to attend the event because he was outside the country.

He however commended President Muhammadu Buhari for recognising June 12 as the country’s Democracy Day and for honouring Abiola.

He said the honour would rekindle the national consciousness of all Nigerians for a better nation.

Nwosu’s position was contained in a letter addressed to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

Nwosu said June 12, 1993 marked a turning point in Nigeria’s tortuous journey towards a democratic polity.
