#Mr Speaker, I want to thank the mover of this motion and also to some extent adopt what my colleague has just said about appreciating the recognition of June 12 as democracy day.
It marks as a watershed in our history and recognition has been made to some of the people that participated and some of the actors that were involved in June 12.
But I will ask my colleagues here to unanimously agree with me that, there was a key actor whose act of courage and fearlessness stood for what was right and did it despite threats to his life and that of his loved ones.
In all this, I did not see nor hear his name mentioned and it brought me some level of sadness.

The Person in question is the man, the umpire that conducted the election that was acknowledged as the best election in the country and the person in question is Prof Humphrey Nwosu.
In all these awards, he was not recognized and I felt that anybody who has shown the act of courage to do what is right even in the face of threat to his life should be acclaimed a hero in this Country and I will support that Prof Humphrey Nwosu be included among those who will receive the honors.
I so “Amend”.
Hon Chris Azubogu
