What Ken Nnamani Did When Obasanjo's 3rd Term Agenda Was Raised in the Senate -Chuks Ohuegbe

The Director of Publication at Pilot Newspaper, Chuks Ohuegbe, has recalled how the then-senate president, Ken Nnamani, involved journalists in the senate's hearing of the 3rd term agenda during the administration of Olusegun Obasanjo. Ohuegbe raised the topic while advising that the presidential election-related cases should be aired live for all Nigerians to watch.

Addressing the topic, Ohuegbe said, "During Obasanjo's tenure in 2006, while the third term agenda was raging, it was left for the Nigerian Senate to decide. However, Ken Nnamani (left) was the Senate President at the time. The media did its job, and each Nigerian senator was summoned to speak on the subject. However, what Nnamani did was announce that the proceedings would be relayed live.

He added, "AIT relayed the proceedings live, and every senator was given the opportunity to state their position on the topic." I think the same can be done regarding the presidential election cases.
