The Supreme Court has sacked Herman Hembe from the House of Representatives. The apex court also ordered him to return all salaries collected so far before his sacking.
Mr. Hembe, who represents Vandikwa/Konshisha constituency of Benue State was not the valid candidate of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress, the court ruled.
The court also ordered that Mr. Hembe be replaced with Dorathy Mato, who was declared the right winner of the APC primaries.
Mr. Hembe’s sack occurs about two months after the Supreme Court sacked another member of the House, Sopuluchukwu Ezeonwuka.
