BREAKING: Presidential Tribunal Gives Verdict on Atiku, Obi’s Request for Live Broadcast of Proceedings

The presidential election petition tribunal has ruled out the application seeking the live coverage of proceedings in court.

This decision was issued on Monday, May 22, at the court of appeal in Abuja when Justice Haruna Tsammani ruled out the application of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and The Labour Party.

Justice Tsammani said the application of the PDP and Labour Party for a live broadcast of proceedings lacked merit.

The jurors ruled that televising the proceedings was novel and added no value to the petition as it is not stipulated in Nigeria’s constitution or legal framework.

As reported by the Daily Trust, he said:

“The mere sentimental claim that it (live broadcast of proceedings) will benefit the voters has no utilitarian value on the matters before the court.”

Justice Tsammani stated that it best to avoid the live telecast of proceedings noting that one cannot predict the implication of what might be the result of its approval.
