Tribunal Turns Down Live Telecast Of Presidential Election, The Petition Proceedings

By Glam & Essence


The request by The People’s Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar,to live stream the proceedings of his petition against the election and declaration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as winner of the last presidential election was turned down by the tribunal on monday in Abuja.
The Court held that the request was a novel one and not supported with any law in the country for now.
Chairman of the Court, Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani, who delivered the unanimous decision of the panel, said the request was not rooted from the petition Atiku filed before the Court.
Justice Tsammani also said that the request was capable of turning the court to a stadium or market square and that such must not be allowed for now.
Justice Tsammani also said granting live telecast of the proceedings of the petition would not add any totalitarian value to the petition and was without merit and subsequently dismissed it.
