SUKKUR: The Sukkur Electric Power Company (Sepco) CEO Mujahid Islam Billah was removed by the federal water and power ministry on Tuesday. Former Sepco CEO Dilawar Hasnain Memon has been reappointed in his place. Billah had not attended office since Eid and was neither taking interest in work nor making payments to the power generation companies, according to officials. Around two months ago, Billah had engaged in a row with two sub-divisional officers which led to a protest against him, said the officials, adding that later, Billah had referred their cases to the National Accountability Bureau for inquiry. One of the sub-divisional officers is said to be very close to an influential politician of Sukkur, which may have resulted in his removal. Meanwhile, Billah claimed to be unwell and said he is on medical leave, which is why Memon has been posted in his place. Confirming his posting, Memon told The Express Tribune he will join from Wednesday.
