Sindh governor Saeed-uz-Zaman passes away in Karachi [Dawn News] 11 Jan, 2017

Sindh governor Justice (retired) 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 retired 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.

Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani will serve as acting governor of Sindh, DawnNews reported.

Born in Lucknow on Dec 1, 1938, Saeed-uz-Zaman Siddiqui’s family migrated to then East Pakistan.

He acquired his early education from Dhaka and then moved to Karachi, then capital of Pakistan.

He got admission in Karachi University from where he did graduation and then studied law. He enrolled as advocate of the high court and then the apex court in 1963 and 1968, respectively.

He contested elections of the bar and held various positions until he was appointed a judge of the Sindh High Court in May 1980.

Ten years later, he was appointed chief justice of the SHC and in May 1992 elevated as a judge of the Supreme Court. His tenure as the 15th chief justice of Pakistan began on July 1, 1999, and ended on Jan 26, 2000.

Siddiqui was among aspiring candidates for the post of president in 2003 and 2008.
