By Vanguard Newspaper, Lagos

Former chieftain of the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) and Second Republic minister, Dr Wahab Dosunmu, is dead.

He died at a United States of America hospital Sunday night after a brief illness.  He was aged 74.

Details of his death were sketchy as of press time.

The late politician was one of those who fought for the actualization of the June 12, 1993 presidential mandate of late Chief M.K.O Abiola through NADECO.

In 1999, he aspired to govern Lagos but lost the ticket to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. He won election into the Senate on the banner of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) and later defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before the end of his term in 2003.

Contacted, former Lagos State Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Murtala Ashorobi, confirmed the politician’s death.
