The Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi have thrown their weight behind the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar’s call for a live broadcast of the proceedings of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja.

The lawyer representing the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Livy Uzuokwu (SAN) disclosed this on Wednesday to newsmen after the court adjourned pre-hearing sessions in their petition challenging the election of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.

According to report, Uzuokwu established that the court proceedings needed to be covered live so Nigerians would have first-hand information on what is going on in the court.

He claimed that, during the time of colonial masters, live broadcast of court proceedings was initiated but it was jettisoned when Nigeria gained independence.

The realities on ground necessitate a live broadcast of court proceedings, he argued, while also declaring that Obi and the Labour Party support the request by Atiku and his party.

For instance, he said the courtroom cannot conveniently accommodate 200 people, and the 200 people cannot adequately represent Nigerians, adding that if the proceedings are broadcast live, Nigerians will be better informed.

“During the hearing of the motion on notice by Atiku and PDP, Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Mr. Obi, will be fully in support,” the senior lawyer said.
