A government spokesperson Sunday rejected news reports regarding nomination of Ameer Muhammad Khan Jogezai as Governor Balochistan.

It was mere a suggestion and was not a final decision, a press release quoted the spokesperson as saying.

Terming the news as baseless, it was further clarified that after surfacing of certain evidences related to Jogezai, no further development took place over the proposal.

Earlier today, Doctor Ameer Mohammad Khan Jogezai refuted the claims of rejecting the offer of Prime Minister Imran Khan to accept governorship of Balcohistan.

While denying media reports, he clarified “I have not excused from taking charge of governor’s post, my statements about the issue were misrepresented.”

Dr. Jogezai reiterated his actual statement that he was waiting for National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) clearance to come out and until then he had postponed his oath-taking. “I will swear in as Governor of Balochistan after NAB’s clearance,” he stated.

On Saturday, in a video message, Ameer Jogezai thanked the premier and the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) for trusting him for the office.

“I have a broad political background. My brother and nephew have been governor and ministers and I do not want their reputation to get hurt. Respect for Imran Khan is above all for me, however, I excuse from accepting the post of governor,” he said.

The doctor clarified that there was no FIR or any kind of case registered against him. “The case being mentioned in the news was registered in 2005,” he said.

Jogezai is the son of Sardar Baz Muhammad Khan Jogezai and is a pediatrician by profession.

He has over three decades of experience in the field of pediatrics medicine.He also served as the registrar at the Bolan Medical College in Quetta. He completed his MBBS from BMC in 1982.
