Sindh governor Saeed-uz-Zaman passes away in Karachi
Sindh governor Saeed-uz-Zaman Siddiqui passed away in Karachi on Wednesday according to a governor house spokesman, DawnNews reported.
Siddiqui had been hospitalised earlier today, DawnNews reported.
The governor suffered poor health and had been hospitalised days after his appointment.
The former chief justice was sworn in as the 31st governor of Sindh in November 2016, just days after the federal government decided to end the 14-year tenure of former Sindh governor Ishratul Ibad.
Siddiqui was among aspiring candidates for the post of president in 2003 and 2008.
