He, even went further to compare Jonathan's regime with Abacha's by stating that Abacha was a better leader.

In his own words, he said.

"In an order of successive administration's in my lifetime I think this would be the worst in terms of delivery of services, organization, style of government, transparency, economic management and security.

.... Abacha was worse but within that framework you can see that Abacha regime is actually better than Jonathan regime.... ".

When premium times interviewer told him that Goodluck was building the Abuja airport road, he said that the road was awarded by Yar'adua and not Jonathan. So technically he meant that road won't be built had Yar'adua not awarded the project. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

From all Sowore said, it was clear he summarized Jonathan's regime to be the worst. But looking at the present now, will he have a change of words or does he still maintain his stand.

Most Nigerians would like to know what he would have to say about the present administration when being compared with Jonathan's.

Do you think Jonathan's administration is still the worst?. Do you still agree with Sowore?.

I think he is breathing inside a rat hole now. Himself, his brothers - Soyinka and Tunde Bakare have shot there lousy mouth. They're only murmuring now. After this calamity we found ourselves, if God in His infinite mercy would come to our aid, next time we'll be careful while making outrageous statements.

Sowore, has lost his voice now, he is not sincere and will never be. He was only obeying the voice of his masters while the love lasted, after his encounter with his estrange masters, he lost relevance in Nigeria politics. There's no way he can say anything anymore. Because most the allegations against President Jonathan were lies and he knew it, but he continued because he was bought over which was against the oath he took as a journalist. A betrayar will never go unpunished, what he went through the last time is just the beginning, he is only having a small respite.
