Former military president, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (retd.) has been told to perish the idea  of ruling the country again after his inordinate ambition led him to annul the fairest and  freest election in the history of the country.

Giving this advice in his office in Lagos, General Overseer of Vineyard Christian  Ministries, Bishop John Osa-Oni described as “crumb mentality” Babangida’s decision to vie  for next year’s presidential election.

Crumb mentality, according to him, is putting oneself first in everything instead of the  interest of the people.

“I don’t know what Babangida wants to do again after spending eight years as the country’s  military president. He should be ashamed of himself for coming out again to contest the  country’s presidency. He is 67 years or so, he should go and enjoy his looted wealth.

“I don’t know what he is coming to do again. This is a man that annulled the freest and  fairest election in the history of the country and denied the winner the opportunity to  contribute to the development of the country,” he stated.

Bishop Osa-Oni urged Nigerians to do away with the crumb mentality by voting for credible  leaders in the 2011 elections.

“The 2011 election is coming, let’s go for credible leaders. No one should sell his/her  votes. Don’t sell your birthright.

“We have missed two capable leaders who could have transformed this country. I am referring  to Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Basorun MKO Abiola.

“This is the time to change the mindset of the people. Awolowo and Abiola are not concerned  with themselves but the people,” he said.

The bishop also disclosed that his church would be holding its annual convention tagged  “Kingdom Celebration,” with the theme: No More Crumbs as from 6-12 September, 2010 at the  church auditorium, 34/36, Osolo Way, Ajao Estate and invited members of the public to the  event.

On the aim of the programme, Bishop Osa-Oni said: “This is the time to change the mindset of  the people by educating them. Until the mindset of the people is changed, nothing will  happen. The future is nothing that comes suddenly, it begins with today’s dream. When the  people have a dream or idea today, things will change. That is the theme of our kingdom  celebration.
