Federal Board of Revenue Chairperson Shabbar Zaidi resigned from his post on Tuesday morning.

He said that he has been advised by his doctors to not take stress and rest. Zaidi has confirmed to SAMAA TV that he does not plan on rejoining once he feels better.

Zaidi had taken a sick leave from January 6 to January 19. Many people speculated that differences have developed between Zaidi and the government. The FBR, however, rejected such reports.

He joined on January 20 but took another leave from January 31 onwards.

Nausheen Javaid Amjad was serving as the acting chairperson of the FBR in Zaidi’s absence.

The government is thinking about options for his replacement and has held meetings with different people.
