President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has explained why cameramen were restricted from gaining entry into the senate chamber to cover proceedings citing security reasons.

Special Adviser to the Senate President on Media and Public Affairs, Mr. Yusuph Olaniyonu, said the Senate, and the National Assembly by extension, had nothing against the Press.

He said the chamber’s gallery was still open to journalists and members of the public to observe proceedings.

The Senate, on Thursday, restricted coverage of its proceedings to six television stations forcing all the cameramen to boycott coverage of the plenary at the chamber.
