Punjab Governor Omar Sarfraz Cheema has been admitted to the Services Hospital Lahore on Saturday after he suffered from ill health.
According to local media reports, the Punjab governor suffered a bout of ill health in the early hours of the morning after which his staff was informed. He was shifted to the hospital where doctors diagnosed with him diarrhea.
They said that doctors are examining Omar Sarfraz Cheema’s health and have conducted a few medical tests. However, the Punjab governor was not in any immediate danger.
This comes as the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday asked President Arif Alvi to nominate another representative to administer oath to Chief Minister Punjab Hamza Shehbaz after Governor Omar Sarfraz Cheema refused to do so.
The court ruled that the governor could not refuse to take oath from the chief minister-elect and that the president should appoint another representative to administer oath to Hamza Shehbaz.
The court also gave directions to send a copy of the LHC’s decision to the president in order to ensure implementation on the orders within 24 hours.
Previously, President Arif Alvi had excused himself from administering oath to federal cabinet members compelling the government to postpone the ceremony.
