Tribunal: The Constitution Says The Public Have The Right To Attend And Witness The Court Process - Atsen

While Bulus Atsen, the Former Chairman, Nigeria Bar Association, FCT was talking with Arise News, he said that the presidential court case proceedings should be televised to the public so that Nigerians will know how the court case is going on.

He also said that the Nigerian constitution states that the court case should be made public, the public should be allowed to attend the court yard to witness the proceedings. He said "The court case should be televised, and shown to the general public, the Nigerian constitution states that the public have the right to attend and witness the court case".

"If the constitution supports the witnessing of the court case, then Nigerians should be allowed to view the process via their televisions, and I see nothing wrong with that".

Many people have argued whether the court case should be televised or not, for different reasons meant for them. And the court has ordered no one to record the proceedings of the court, but many Nigerians are against it, saying that it should be televised for everyone to witness it. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
