The senator who represented Ondo South Senatorial District and proposed a third term in office for former president Olusegun Obasanjo, Hosea Ehinlanwo, is dead.

According to SaharaReporters, 83-year-old Ehinlanwo died in Abuja on Friday shortly after he returned from the hospital.

“Ehinlanwo died at home in Abuja shortly after he returned from the hospital,” a source revealed.

The former senator, confessed to playing a crucial role in pushing a third-term agenda for former President Olusegun Obasanjo before the 2007 general elections.

In April 2012, after he had left the National Assembly, Ehinlanwo explained in an interview the reason he brought the infamous proposal for a third term for former President Obasanjo.

He said, “I want to confess to you as an elder statesman that I will not deny that I brought up the motion, which was supported by the majority of the members of that committee,” Ehinlawo had said.

“I was looking at the experience of government at that time and I said if we give him (Obasanjo) another term, he might be able to take this country to sail across all these bottlenecks, headaches and incoherent leadership. That was my thought then.”

In his lifetime, the former senator worked as a legal practitioner, teacher, University lecturer, and banker among others.
