Advisor to Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Ajmal Wazir stepped down from his post here on Saturday (today).
According to KP provincial assembly member, Kamran Bangash, Ajmal Wazir has been removed due to some personal reasons.
Wazir has been removed after an audio leak, Kamran Bangash said, adding that a forensic report of the audio recording will also be prepared by the inquiry.
“I will reveal further details at a press conference later today,” he stated.
“I am unable to dispense my duties as the information advisor, therefor I am resigning from my post,” Wazir said.
Wazir said he has already sent his resignation to Chief Minister Mahmood Khan.
Wazir was appointed as the advisor to the chief minister for information in 2019. He had been assigned the task of supervision and coordination of merged districts affairs in addition to serving as the spokesperson of the provincial government.
Wazir had joined the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) just before the July 2018 general election.
He was earlier a member of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam and had remained its central vice-president.
