The former Chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission(NERC), Dr Sam Amadi has taken to his Twitter to give reasons why judges should allow televising proceedings.
Sam Amadi took to his microblogging, Twitter some minutes ago to give reasons why judges should allow televising proceedings.
According to Sam Amadi, he said that courts and judicial proceedings were part of the important rituals of democracy and not elitist and disconnected to society.
More so, Sam Amadi explained further that banning mobile phones inside the court and not televising proceedings were the ultimate invitation to distrust and distortions.
In his tweet, he wrote in the following below: "Courts and judicial proceedings are part of the important rituals of democracy. Proceedings in the courts or tribunals are part of the deliberations of a democratic state. They are not elitist and disconnected to society.
"As our society looks more divisive and less trusting of official state institutions, the judiciary helps itself by drawing the people into the orbit of its functioning. Banning phones inside the court and not televising its proceeding are the ultimate invitation to distrust & distortions."
