A tribal elder Abdul Rahim Niazi said that Akhunzada personally paid visits to security check posts and monitored security situations across the province.
Provincial Council chief Mohammad Sadiq Chakhansuri said every tribe of Nimorz province were happy with Amir Mohammad and wanted him to continue his job.
