Adviser to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister on Information Ajmal Wazir has been removed from his designation. A notification from the provincial government stated that Ajmal Wazir has been replaced by Imran Khan Bangash. The action has been taken under Section 3 of KP Advisers and Special Assistants to the Chief Minister (Appointment) Act, 1989. The reason behind Wazir’s removal is said to be a leaked audio clip and allegations that he received a commission from an advertising agency. “Ajmal Wazir was removed after leaked audio [clip],” Bangash confirmed. “Some things have come to light regarding [Wazir] taking commissions from an advertising firm.” On the other hand, Wazir was quoted saying that he had resigned from his post due to personal reasons. “I am unable to dispense my duties as the information adviser, therefor I am resigning from my post,” Wazir had said. According to Wazir, he had already sent his resignation to Chief Minister Mahmood Khan. K-P Chief Minister Mahmood Khan has ordered a fact finding enquiry into a recently surfaced audio tape of the former adviser. Earlier this year, on March 4, the provincial government changed the portfolio of the Information Minister Shaukat Yousafzai and Adviser to CM on Merged Areas Ajmal Wazir was made adviser on information and public relations.
