Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair has sent his resignation following landslide victory of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in General Elections 2018.
According to sources, Governor Sindh Zubair has forwarded his resignation letter to President Mamnoon Hussain.
“President will appoint new Governor as per Constitution. I played my role effectively under the capacity of Sindh governor”, stated Zubair.
Zubair was sworn in as the 32nd governor of Sindh during an oath-taking ceremony held at the Governor House on February 2, 2017.
The position had been vacant since January 11, 2017, when the 79-year-old governor Saeed-uz-Zaman passed away after a prolonged illness.
Zubair is brother of PTI’s would be finance minister Asad Umer. He is considered to be a close aide to Prime Minister Sharif.
