A pediatrician by trade, he later declined the governorship due to investigation into allegations of embezzlement and misappropriation of funds,[2] but then clarified that his statement about declination was misrepresented, he just requested to delay the oath taking until embezzlement charges are investigated otherwise he is willing to accept the position.[3]

On 26 August 2018 prime minister's office rejected the news reports about his appointment as a governor of Balochistan.[4]
