Oby Ezekwesili, a former minister of education, has responded to reports that INEC, Bola Tinubu, and the All Progressives Congress (APC) denied Atiku Abubakar's request to broadcast the Presidential Election Tribunal hearings live.
In response, the country's previous minister of education stated that he or she finds it incomprehensible that anyone would object to live-streaming the hearings before the Presidential Election Tribunal.
Dr. Ezekwesili continued by saying that studies had been conducted on the topic in an effort to uncover proof of the negative effects of courtroom cameras, but instead found positive results.
Read below for the complete tweet in which Dr. Ezekwesili made this confession on Thursday afternoon.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate, Mr. Wole Olanipekun, SAN, recently fought back against the opposition People's Democratic Party's (PDP) and Atiku Abubakar's request that court hearings be televised live. However, Nigerians are curious as to how this will conclude.
