PM House denies nominating Jogezai for Balochistan governor
QUETTA (92 News) – Prime Minister’s House spokesperson has refuted news regarding nominating Ameer Muhammad Khan Jogezai as Governor of Balochistan.
In his statement, the spokesperson said that it was just a proposal and not a final decision to give office of Balochistan’s governor to Ameer Muhammad Khan Jogezai. He attested the news of 92News, which was broadcasted yesterday, that the PTI did not decide to make Doctor Ameer Mohammad Khan as the governor of Balochistan.
The statement added that under the light of some evidences that surfaced lately against Jogezai, there has been no further progress on the recommendation.
On the other hand, Ameer Khan Jogezai also denied the reports, saying that he refused to accept the designation of governor. He said that he will take oath after clearance from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and not appologised to accept the governor seat.
The NAB spokesman alleged that Ameer Jogezai was involved in corruption of billions rupees. He said that the investigation has been entered in final phase and reference may be submitted after probe.
Meanwhile, on August 25, a notification issued by the PTI said that Dr Jogezai was nominated by the party chief Imran Khan during a consultative meeting held at his residence in Bani Gala.
Hours after Prime Minister Imran Khan nominated Dr Ameer Muhammad Khan Jogezai as next governor of Balochistan, the latter excused myself from accepting the post.
In a video message, Ameer Jogezai thanked the premier and the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) for trusting him for the office.
