Supreme court rejects Atiku's bid for fresh evidence in CSU case

The presidential election petition tribunal has refused a request for live broadcast of its proceedings.

A five-member panel of the court led by Haruna Tsammani held that the application lacked merit.

Atiku, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), made the request on May 7.

The former vice-president had said televising the proceedings will enhance public confidence.

Arguing the motion, Chris Uche, counsel for Atiku and the PDP, said: “There is no single legislative or statutory position against it.”

He said a live broadcast doesn’t necessarily mean the faces of the justices would be shown.
