Senator Smart Adeyemi in an interview with the Vanguard newspaper declared that Nigeria would have broken up if it did not have the government of Goodluck Joanthan.
Responding to a question on why he puts much confidence in the present administration, the senator who represents Kogi West Senatorial District said, “Tell me the government that has ever ruled this country that has had the challenges of administration more than Goodluck. Tell me the government in Nigeria that has faced worse social disorder in any nation than Goodluck Jonathan’s.”
He continued, “There is no government in Nigeria that has had the burden and pains of carrying the challenge of terrorism than Jonathan’s. The problem of terrorism is enough to collapse the economy. If we didn’t have the government of Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria would have broken up”.
He concluded, “Jonathan came at a time in this country when God wanted him to preside over Nigeria. If we have had a president that people say action government, the situation today would have been worse”.
