According to details, the court stated that Murtaza Wahab did not have the proper expertise regarding law nor the required experience. Hence, the appointment of Murtaza Wahab as Adviser to the Chief Minister on law and order was termed illegal by the Honourable Court.
The judgement came on a petition from Advocate Fareed Ahmed Dayo who had challenged the grant of ministerial status to an adviser. The petitioner had stated that an adviser could only support the Chief Minister and not run a ministry by himself.
Murtaza Wahab Siddiqui is the son of former PPP leader Fauzia Wahab. He was appointed as the Adviser to Chief Minister Sindh on law and order by Syed Qaim Ali Shah in April 2015.
