Uroghide denied on Saturday evening in Benin-City that he moved a motion for the impeachment of Buhari, the Sun reported.
He had come under attack from several groups in Edo State since he was reported to have moved the motion.
But speaking to journalists afterwards, the embattled Senator explained that he never moved a motion for the impeachment of the President on account of his anticipated approval of the sum of $496 million for the purchase of Military equipment.
He said that he only called for the invocation section 143 of the Constitution, which according to him requires investigation before impeachment.
Speaking to newsmen, Urhoghide said he does not have any regret for what he said at the floor of the Senate.
Urhoghide who said that he would seek redress in court, stressed that he would report back to the Senate that he was humiliated for what he said during plenary.

Meanwhile, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that following Friday’s attack on Urhoghide, Edo state police command has beefed up security around his Benin residence.
NAN further reports that two police hill lux vans were stationed outside while heavily armed policemen were seen outside.
Party supporters were at the residence to show solidarity with him.
