The Enugu State House of Assembly on Wednesday denied the existence of impeachment notice against Governor Sullivan Chime.

The lawmakers' position was contained in a letter signed by the Clerk of the House, Mr. Christopher Chukwurah, declaring that the House didn't move impeachment motion against the governor.

The letter comes on the heels of a similar denial by 15 lawmakers who had reportedly passed a resolution to commence impeachment proceedings against the governor.

They had denied the existence of an impeachment notice at Tuesday's peace meeting brokered between the warring factions of the House by the governor-elect, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

The lawmakers said they never signed any notice to that effect.

'During our meeting with Governor elect, he asked for a copy of the notice impeachment against the governor and everyone denied having signed any of such document,' one of the lawmakers told journalists.

The two factions also agreed to maintain a two-week moratorium to seek a resolution of issues between them.
