Abuja - The Delta State House of Assembly has dispelled rumours of the impeachment notice against Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan as reported in some quarters.
The House said instead, it had passed a vote of confidence on Uduaghan for his policies and programmes geared towards the upliftment of the state and its people.
The legislators were also said to have passed a confidence vote on the Speaker, Peter Onwusanya, for the collaborative effort with the governor towards promoting the wellbeing of Delta people.
According to the House, the vote of confidence passed on the governor was an affirmation that the impeachment notice was never an issue in the house.
The vote of confidence passed on the duo stemmed from a motion of Matters of Urgent Public Importance moved by the Deputy Majority Leader, Prince Johnson Erijo.

It was seconded by the member representing Warri South Constituency 11, Dennis Omovie.
The motion was unanimously supported by the house presided upon by the Speaker, Peter Onwusanya.
Leading debate on the motion, Erijo noted that the vote of implicit confidence on the Governor was apt on the day he was been honoured by some media with the Governor of the Year award.
"The Governor has effectively used his three-point agenda to touch all facets of the economy for even development of the state in the past seven years of his administration," Erijo said.
He said the Governor's giant strides in the socio-economic development of the state for the past seven years are noticeable in all facets of the economy, saying the house has always passed the Appropriation Bills brought before it in record time to bring the Governor's vision to fruition.
