President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Prof Saad Ahmed as the new Chief Medical Director, Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Jabi, Abuja.
A statement issued on Wednesday by Assistant Director, Press and Publicity in the Ministry of Health, (FMOH), Eunice Akro, said the appointment takes effect from Feb. 16, 2020.
The Minister, Sen. Olorunnimbe Mamora, while congratulating Ahmed urged him to do his best by improving on the achievements already attained at the hospital.
Mamora advised him to focus more on service performance in order to build public trust in the health sector.
“This can be achieved by treating patients with respect. Also, work in harmony with all stakeholders in the sector and Nigerians,” he advised.
He urged him to work harmoniously with the board members in order to surpass the legacy that was already in place at the hospital as this would go a long way to justify the confidence reposed in him by the President Buhari.
Before his appointment, Ahmed was a Professor of Pathology with the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Kaduna State.
He is also specialist in Anatomic pathology.
