Sindh Governor admitted to hospital in critical condition
KARACHI (92 News) – Sindh Governor Justice (r) Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui has been admitted to a private hospital in a critical condition on Sunday.
The newly appointed Sindh Governor is suffering from breathing problems after which he was shifted to hospital in Clifton.
Justice (r) Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui is in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). He had on Friday taken oath as the province’s governor after the federal government removed Dr Ishrat-ul-Ibad from his position after 14 years.
Former chief justice Justice (r) Saeeduzzaman Siddiqui shot to fame when he defied the request given by Pervez Musharraf via the Law Minister and Legal Adviser Sharifuddin Pirzada to take a new oath under the Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO).
He was the candidate for president by PML-N during the 2008 presidential elections against PPPP’s Asif Ali Zardari. However, he lost the presidential election by 159 votes to Asif Ali Zardari, who was elected President of Pakistan.
