A former ambassador , Joe Keshi has requested that cameras be allowed in the Supreme Court hearing on the 2023 election results.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) results are being challenged by the Labour Party (LP), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP).
In the midst of charges of election fraud in the presidential and National Assembly elections, LP’s Peter Obi has stated his determination to go to court.
Speaking on the forthcoming legal battle, Keshi who has been an ambassador to several countries stated how important it is to allow cameras in the courtroom.
In an appearance on Arise TV’s ‘The Morning Show’, he said that including cameras would enable Nigerians to follow the whole process as it unfolds.
“The Supreme Court should do the right thing and for the Supreme Court to do the right thing, for their own sake.
“For goodness sake, let them allow cameras into the court for the first time so that Nigerian people could follow the process so that at the end of the day whatever judgement they gave, Nigerians would be satisfied that they followed their process and followed all the evidence.
“I’m appealing to the judges to allow cameras into the court for the first time to witness so that Nigerians can listen to the evidence and be convinced that the judges are credible as we want them to be”, Keshi stated.
