“I have been an active participant during the Military era and the current democratic dispensation. I am in a position to say without fear of contradiction that democracy is the best kind of government.
“It is a product of the wishes of the people. It is representative and participatory. Indeed people have a say and determines what they want through the ballot boxes.”
