"Tamima Ibrahim I will treasure you, and your wise counsel forever, indeed in this industry you have been the right hand to my left hand. That's just a tip of the iceberg. It doesn't end here, one day I'll tell you how this phenomenal woman changed my life...till then, I wish you well, shine the light wherever you go,” the news anchor expressed.
