Dr. Jibrin said he personally served under the outgoing Medical Director as HOD ophthalmology and later as deputy head of clinical services before becoming the head of the clinical services.

“We have learned how to cope him especially the aspect that the head of audit was mentioning that if he wants something to be achieved, ‘it’s a war’ you must do it, in which to many of us in the TMC we thought it was over tasking but at the end of the day we realized that it was the only to achieve something and I think many of us have coped and we have finally even adopted his style to the extent that if you want something to be done you must insist on it been carried out at the stipulated time otherwise it will not be done”, he said.

The Acting MD added; “So I think as you are leaving us you are not leaving completely, you will still be with us as a mentor because in the next few months we will have to be consulting you on how to clear certain issues because a leader is always a leader”.
