Shabbar Zaidi is my favourite, says Hafeez Sheikh
Islamabad: Advisor to Prime Minister on Finance and Revenue, Abdul Hafeez Sheikh has said that Shabbar Zaidi is his favourite.

While talking to media in Islamabad today, he said that Chairman Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Shabbar Zaidi is not feeling well.

“Mr. Zaidi is feeling unwell and therefore he is on a long break. In case he doesn’t recover, we will look for a substitute after consulting with him,” he said.

Speaking on government’s talks with International Monetary Fund (IMF) he said,

“Talks are underway with IMF delegation.”

Earlier today, while exclusively talking to GNN, Shabbar Zaidi said that he has difficulties continue working as Chairman FBR owing to his bad health.

“Doctors have suggested me to take rest. I have already talked to Prime Minister Imran Khan that I won’t be able to continue working. PM can decide on behalf of my request,” he said.

In May 2019, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that government had appointed renowned chartered accountant and tax affairs expert Syed Shabbar Zaidi as chairman of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR).
