Senator Sani reacts as court overrules PDP and LP's request for livestream of petition proceedings

Recall that following the decalaration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the winner of the February 25 polls, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar who came second and the candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi who came third in the election, rejected its outcome and filed a suit at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal challenging the victory of Tinubu.

While the court has undergone the pre-hearing of their suit, the both candidates requested for the proceedings of the case to be covered live for the public to see what is happening in the court.

However, the Chairman of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, Justice Haruna Tsammani on Monday dismissed the application for live coverage of court proceedings on the grounds that it lacked merit.

This ruling had caused mixed feelings among Nigerians including a former Nigerian lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani who questioned how justice as regards the election petition will be seen since there will be no live coverage.

He also made reference to the saying that justice must be done and must be seen to be done.

Senator Sani wrote, "They said justice must be done and must be seen to be done;how can it be seen if there is no livestream tv?"
