A Senator and House of Representatives member sacked Friday by the nation’s Supreme Court will have to cough out N75 million within the next 90 days as refund, being the approximate amount both men made officially in the last two years before the apex court spoilt their fun.
The “unofficial” amounts have been a subject of controversy in the National Assembly, rising yearly in the history of the National Assembly, but dropping in the last two years due to financial constraints since the present administration in the country came on board.
The Supreme Court declared Mrs Dorathy Mato winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party ticket for Vandeikya/ Konshisha federal constituency of Benue state .
She replaces Herman Hembe, who was asked to vacate his House of Representatives office immediately and return all salaries and benefits collected.
Same goes for the former deputy governor of Taraba State.
According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) the Supreme Court of Nigeria on Friday, ordered Senaror Sani Abubakar Danladi, representing Taraba North Senatorial District, to vacate his seat and refund all salaries and allowances he received within 90 days.
