The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, is opposing the application by the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party PDP, Atiku Abubakar, for a live broadcast of the proceedings of the election petition.

Tinubu and Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima through their team of lawyers led by Wole Olanipekun in response to the application yesterday said the request was an abuse of the court process.

They asked the presidential election petition court to dismiss the application, arguing that the relief demanded by the applicants is not such that the court could grant it, adding that the court was not a stadium, theatre, or an arena for public entertainment.

They stated, in the counter affidavit, that the application was linked to policy formulation of the court, which is outside the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal PEPT’s jurisdiction as constituted.
