The progressive governors' forum chairman, who is also governor of Kebbi state, Atiku Bagudu, voiced their position while speaking with State House correspondents in Abuja on Tuesday, August 6.

He said democracy is the best form of government and that any call for disorder in a democratic setting is condemnable.
