Senate holds closed door meeting with Service Chiefs

Senate President, Doctor Bukola Saraki says funding challenges confronting security agencies were among issues discussed at the meeting today with security chiefs.

Doctor Saraki said both parties have now resolved that special funding for security agencies has become necessary and the agencies will bring the request for the special funding in the next two weeks.

He said the special funding which is expected to come as a supplementary budget is separate from the one billion dollar request by President Buhari for security.

In attendance were the Chief of Defence Staff, Abayomi Olonisakin who led the delegation and the Director General of Department of State Services, Lawal Daura.
