Are You Serious? Supreme Court Sacks Herman Hembe from House of Reps

Mr. Hembe, who speaks to Vandikwa/Konshisha body electorate of Benue State was not the substantial candidate of Nigeria's administering All Progressives Congress, the court ruled. 

The court additionally requested that Mr. Hembe be supplanted with Dorathy Mato, who was announced the correct victor of the APC primaries.According to Premiumtimes, Mr. Hembe was also ordered to return all the salaries and allowances he received as lawmaker since he was sworn in in 2015.

Mr. Hembe’s sack occurs about two months after the Supreme Court sacked another member of the House, Sopuluchukwu Ezeonwuka.

The apex court had on April 7 removed Mr. Ezeonwuka of the PDP from representing Orumba North/South of Anambra Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.

Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun gave the order in a judgment in an appeal filed against Mr. Ezeonwuka’s election by a member of the party, Ben Nwankwo.

The court found that Mr. Nwankwo’s name was wrongly substituted with Mr. Ezeonwuka’s, after he obtained the nomination of the party to contest the National Assembly election.

Dissatisfied with the February 20, 2015 judgment of the Federal High Court in Abuja and the decision of the Court Appeal to uphold it, Mr. Nwankwo had approached the apex court.
