Supreme Court sacks Herman Hembe from House of Reps

The Supreme Court has sacked Herman Hembe from the House of Representatives.

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.

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.

Great news! This man was a known cultist from his time at University of Agriculture, Makurdi. This kind of man should never represent any people. The people of Vandeikya/Konshisha deserve better and they just got that in Mrs Mato.

Chai anonymous, get facts straight. Hembe is a lawyer and uni agric doesn't offer law courses. He graduated from Bsu. His rudeness and pride brought him down, the woman was ready to let go after the appeal court declared Hembe winner but he went on insulting her publicly and that prompted her to go to supreme court. Thank God for justice being served.
