LONDON: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif while en route to Pakistan remarked on Friday morning that Pakistan is on a decisive stage.

“I have done all that I could. I know I have been sentenced for 10 years and that I will be taken straight to prison,” he said in a video message shared by his daughter Maryam Nawaz on social media.

The ousted premier, who can be seen sitting in an aeroplane in the video, further urged the people of Pakistan to support him.

“Please support me and walk with me at every step. We must change the country’s future. This opportunity will not come again,” he said.

“I have to tell the Pakistani nation that I am doing this for them. I am giving this sacrifice for your coming generations…for Pakistan’s future,” Nawaz added.
