Chairman Wapda Tenure Extended

ISLAMABAD: The federal cabinet on Tuesday confirmed the extension in Lt Gen (r) Muzammil Hussain’s tenure as the chairman of Wapda by 5 more years.

Posted as the water and power development authority’s chairman back in 2016 by then prime minister Nawaz Shairf, Muzammil Hussain’s term as the Wapda head was to come to an end today.

It is pertinent to note that in a letter earlier in June to Prime Minster Imran Khan, the chairman Wapda stated that he will conclude his term precisely on August 24, 2021 and hence he deemed it appropriate to request the timely initiation of a process for selection of his successor.

“To that end, I would like to recommend that the process of choosing my successor be initiated in a manner to provide for a smooth and dignified transition,” his letter read.
