On Wednesday, May 7, 2015, two factions of the Enugu State House of Assembly denied serving any impeachment notice against Governor Sullivan Chime.
The Clerk of the House, Mr. Christopher Chukwurah, disclosed the minority faction of the lawmakers’ position known in a written statement revealing that the House did not move on impeachment motion against the state governor.
Also, a similar denial has been made by a majority faction consisting of 15 lawmakers who said they had passed a resolution to commence impeachment proceedings against the governor.
They vehemently denied the existence of an impeachment notice at a peace meeting brokered between the warring factions of the House by th Governor-elect Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on Tuesday, May 6, 2015.
The two factions of lawmakers stated they never signed the notice to that effect.
One of the lawmakers granting an interview with journalists said ‘During our meeting with the Governor-elect, he asked for a copy of the notice of impeachment against the governor and everyone denied having signed any of such document’
The two factions also agreed to maintain a two-week moratorium to resolve the issues between them.
