“I have tendered my resignation today to PM as Advisor. I sincerely hope the process of accountability continues under [the] leadership of PM IK as per PTI’s manifesto. I will remain associated with the party [and] keep contributing as a member of the legal fraternity,” he said.

According to the news source, the development comes as PM Imran Khan had expressed dissatisfaction with Akbar’s performance two weeks ago.
