Senator Sani reacts to PDP and Labour Party's demand for tribunal proceedings to be televised live

As the tribunal is set for to carry out the proceedings of the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party suit challenging the outcome of the February 25 presidential polls, the two parties are asking the tribunal for its proceedings to be televised live to enable the public follow up on the happenings as regards the case.

Senator Shehu Sani who is a former member of the Nigerian Senate in his reaction to the opposition parties demand, said the All Progressives Congress does not want the proceedings of the election tribunal to be televised as against the demands by the Labour Party and PDP.

He further noted that the stand of the judiciary on televising its proceedings will be seen as part of its judgement.

Senator Sani wrote, "The opposition wants election tribunal proceedings televised live and the ruling party don’t want the proceedings televised live.Where the judiciary stands on this will be perceived as part of the Judgement."

Recall that Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress was declared winner of the February 25 presidential polls by the Chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmood Yakubu. However, Tinubu's victory is being challenged at the Election Petition Tribunal by Atiku Abubakar of the PDP and Peter Obi of the Labour Party who both claim to be the winner of the election.
