The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has finally sworn in Dorathy Mato, who was declared the authentic representative of Vandeikiya/Konshisha federal constituency of Benue State into the house.

Mato was sworn in today as a replacement for Mr. Herman Hembe.

Hembe, a former Chairman, House Committee on Federal Capital Territory, was sacked by the Supreme Court on June 23.

The court held that Mato was the validly elected candidate of the All Progressives Congress to represent Konshisha Federal Constituency of Benue State.

It is also understood that Mr. Hembe was ordered to return all the salaries and allowances he received as lawmaker since he was sworn in in 2015.
