PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government denied reports that it had granted honorary citizenship to West Indies Twenty20 captain Darren Sammy.

The denial came shortly after a Twitter account being run in the name of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak claimed that Sammy was granted Pakistani citizenship.

The owner of Pakistan Super League’s Peshawar Zalmi team, Javed Afridi, tweeted and requested the Government of Pakistan to grant citizenship to Darren Sammy for his love for this nation.

Reacting to the development, Darren Sammy posted a tweet in Pashtu language, thanking Chief Minister Khattak for the “honor”.

Speaking to SAMAA, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister Mushtaq Ghani said that it was a fake Twitter account.

He said that only federal government can offer honorary citizenship to any foreigner.

PZ Alert:We have requested President of Pakistan to Grant Honorary Citizenship of Pakistan.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, the ruling party of KPK, revealed that Pervez Khatak’s twitter account used for this announcement was fake.
