A student of Peshawar University on Tuesday declined to accept a graduation degree from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Iqbal Zafar Jhagra, citing his dissatisfaction with the federal government as the reason behind the refusal.

Nabi Shah, a student of Journalism and Mass Communications at the university in Peshawar, said he was dissatisfied with the federal government, and so had refused to accept his degree from Jhagra. He maintained that Jhagra is a representative of a government which has been accused of theft.

In response, the KP governor said he respected the student's decision to decline the degree.

"Everyone has their own reservations. He [the student] might be correct in his own right and I respect that," Jhagra said.

"I have no issues, this is a democracy a person can live as he wishes," he added.
