BREAKING: After sacking Rep, Supreme Court sacks Nigerian Senator


Minister of Power, Works & Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, SAN (middle) and others during a Briefing of the Senate on the Planned Closure of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja Runway for Repairs at the Senate Chamber on Tuesday, 17th January  2017.The Supreme Court has sacked Abubakar Danladi from the Nigerian Senate.
Mr. Danladi represented Taraba North in the Senate.
The apex court also ordered him to refund all salaries and allowances earned in the Senate within 90 days.
Mr. Danladi was sacked by the Supreme Court on the same day a member of the House of Representatives, Herman Hembe, was also sacked by the apex court.
Mr. Danladi’s political career was once saved by the same Supreme Court which ousted him today.
In 2014, the court ordered him reinstated as Taraba State’s deputy governor after he was impeached in controversial circumstances.
Mr. Danladi was the first deputy governor who ran on the same ticket with former Governor Dantata Suntai.
He was impeached  on October 4, 2012 shortly before Mr. Suntai took ill after an air crash. He was accused of fraud and abuse of office.
Another politician, Garba Umar, was then appointed deputy governor after his removal.
And after then Governor Suntai took ill following a plane crash, it was Mr. Umar who assumed the position of acting governor.
But the Supreme Court ruled on November 21, 2014, nullifying Mr. Danladi’s impeachment, and clearing him to replace Mr. Umar as acting governor. The court said Mr. Danladi was denied fair hearing before he was impeached.
Seven justices of the court agreed with the ruling, delivered by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, at the time.
Mr. Danladi remained in office as acting governor until May 29, 2015. He was elected senator on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party during the 2015 general election.
