Professor JohnsonAbdul-Wahab B. R. Johnson(MBBS (Ilorin), FWACP(Nigeria))

 


Short Biography & Early Educational Background:
•    Born some 56yrs ago in Epetedo area of Lagos Island; Early childhood life, primary and secondary education were in Lagos culminating in a high school graduation with the West African School leaving Certificate and Higher School Certificates in 1970&1972 respectively; spent 4 as against 5 years in the secondary school, and was the Senior Prefect in the final (Higher School Certificate) year.
•    Happily married (for over 31 years) with four children (or perhaps adults!), and indeed a potential grandfather since October 2009.  
Professional/Academic Qualifications & Milestones
•    Holds the MB,BS Ibadan, 1978 and FWACP (Paed.), 1986; subspecialty interests in Paediatric Pulmonology and Infectious Diseases.
•    Internship rotations (1978-79) in Secondary Health Facilities under the Lagos State Health Management Board  supervised by the relevant Consultants.
•    National Youth Service (NYSC programme) at Iffo-Otta local government, Ogun State (1979-80) with the primary assignment of a Medical Officer of Health (MOH), and provision of curative and preventive medical services, formulating, and monitoring the implementation of health policy decisions.
•    Residency training in Paediatrics at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan (1980-86), under professional role models like the late Professors A.U. Antia, W.I. Aderele (whose subspecialty area of Paediatric Pulmonology & Infectious Disease I eventually embraced), J.B. Familusi, A.O.K. Johnson, Femi Jaiyesimi & A.H. Dawodu among others.
•    Appointed Lecturer 1/Consultant Paediatrician at the University of Ilorin and the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital in July and August 1987, Senior Lecturer, October 1992, Reader (Associate Professor), 1994.
•    Second Professor of Paediatrics & Child Health of our Faculty, College  and indeed University of Ilorin from year 2000 to date (First was Prof. Adeoye Adeniyi, who was the first Dean and a former Vice-chancellor) who Was  a Visiting Professor of Paediatrics, Consultant Paediatrician & Pulmonologist(Sabbatical Appointments) at Bayero University Kano, & Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, (AKTH) Kano, Kano State, Nigeria and subsequently the Lagos State University College of Medicine (LASUCOM)  -  March 2008-2009.     
•    Over the past 23 years since I took to the calling of a Consultant Paediatrician and Medical Educator, I have contributed immensely to making the Department of Paediatrics of this faculty a unique repository of knowledge and clinical skills to our principal clients, i.e. medical students. Under my leadership, the departmental robust style of positive cognitive engagements of students in both theoretical and clinical knowledge base is eminently verifiable from generations of students.

Research and other academic exposures activities were on “Childhood Asthma and infectious triggers” as well as other areas of paediatric respiratory medicine and infectious diseases.

Some SIXTEEN (16) others have acquired the qualifications and skills of a junior specialist as Senior Registrars and preparing for the exit stage of the training programme.
•    Nominee for the USA published Marquis’ Book of “Who is Who in the World” (a compilation of distinguished world professionals) for the year 1998.

Administrative Responsibilities & Experience

  1. Senior Prefect (Head boy) in my final year (Upper Six, Higher School Certficate Class) at my Secondary  School (Ansar-Ud-Deen College, Isolo, Lagos), a responsibility earned on the basis of exemplary character and an impeccable academic track record.
  2. Head of Paediatrics and Child Health (acting or substantive), for not less than eleven (12) of my 23 years as a medical educator and consultant paediatrician at the Medical School/College of the University of Ilorin and the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital.  My tenure as the Head, witnessed tremendous strides in the service and training components of  departmental programmes in addition to innovative (IT-driven changes in our teaching methodologies and several successful accreditation visits of the West African Post-graduate Medical College, the National Post-graduate Medical College, National University Commission & the Nigerian Medical & Dental Council. That we were able to train some 16 Paediatricians from primary to post-part II level (i.e. the Consultant appointable level) is a measure of the robustness of our training programmes and activities with which I am proudly associated.
  3. Member of the University Senate, the highest administrative body of the University. Member  for close to about 10 years.
  4. Had acted several times as the Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC) whenever the incumbent was away.  I have also had to act for the Chief Medical Director, when the chief executive was away on an official assignment and the CMAC similarly engaged.
  5. I was the Chairman, Local Organising Committee of the Febr. 1998 Paediatric Association of Nigeria’s Conference - PANCONF ILORIN ’98, and recently, Vice Chairman of the 2010 edition (PANCONF ILORIN, 2010). The organisation of the two Conferences was generally acclaimed to be excellent.
  6. Vice-Chancellor’s Nominee and Member of the University Senate’s Committee for investigating  the violent students’ demonstration of March, 2004; Committee’s recommendations was highly commended and subsequently adopted by the senate as the blueprint for sanctioning  erring students, and preventing subsequent students’ unrest.
  7. Had acted several times in the past as Dean of Clinical Sciences, College of Health Sciences, University of Ilorin (between May, 2004 and February 2008), the Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC), and a few times as the Chief Medical Director of the UITH.
  8. Chairman, University of Ilorin Technical Advisory Committee between 2004 and 2006. The committee acted as a clearing or screening body for vetting the award of university contracts/jobs within the approval competence of the Vice Chancellor.
  9. Chairman of the Faculty Dress Code Committee for medical students (2005). Despite the religious sensitivity of the assignment, our recommendations remain the current institutional blue print, and indeed, the forerunner of corresponding recommendations for the entire student population of the University!
  10. Contested unsuccesfully for the Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee post in 2002.
