ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has issued an official press release which indicates that it wants to appease PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif who will soon become prime minister for the third time.

“NAB is determined to follow the new government’s declared intent of zero tolerance for corruption and full promotion of meritocracy for good governance,” the press release issued on Tuesday said.

It said the bureau would present short- and long-term action plans to the new government for ownership and full support in its anti-corruption efforts.

In an apparent move to appease the PML-N chief, NAB spokesman Ramzan Sajid said: “NAB chairman retired Admiral Fasih Bokhari was appointed the Navy chief by Nawaz Sharif.”

During the scrutiny of candidates for the May 11 elections, the NAB had sent a detailed report to Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on bank loan defaulters which carried the names of Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif.

Of course NAB would be bending backwards to appease the powerful.. Could there activities be audited to see whether they are worth the expense? If no one is accountable in Pakistan then why bother with such institutions and waste millions ??

Faseh Bukhari Sahib. Its time to retire again and finally go home. Don't do what you used to do in Navy, "Appeasement".
