President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf, was yesterday discharged from Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja, where he was admitted on December 26, after sustaining severe head injuries from a power-bike crash.

Buhari, his wife, Aisha, and his entire family, thanked “all men and women of goodwill within and outside the country, for their prayers and best wishes,” which they said aided the discharge of their son from the hospital.

In a statement, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said the family appreciated the overwhelming show of love and solidarity over Yusuf’s involvement in a motorcycle crash on December 26, 2017.

“We thank Nigerians from all walks of life, both within and outside the country, leaders of many foreign countries, groups, organizations, individuals, and many others, who prayed, visited, sent messages, and generally stood by us at the trying time,” the family was quoted as saying.

The Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, Dr. Felix Ogedegbe, who gave account of how Yusuf was treated by the army of high profile medical personnel, thanked Buhari and his wife, Aisha, for the confidence reposed in the hospital.

Boasting of world class treatment which he said the hospital offered Yusuf, Ogedengbe denied the involvement of Yusuf’s friend in the accident as reported by a section of the media.

He also denied the admission of Mrs. Buhari in the hospital as reported in a section of the media, as he thanked all and sundry who prayed for Yusuf, which he said facilitated his recovery process.

“Mr. Yusuf Muhammadu Buhari, son of His Excellency, President Buhari, was admitted into Cedarcrest Hospitals Abuja in the late hours of the 26th of December 2017, following injuries sustained as a rider of a motorcycle. 

“Following initial stabilisation, he was taken into intensive care. He underwent successful emergency surgical operations the following morning carried out by our team of neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons.

“Over the following week, his condition improved remarkably and he was transferred from intensive care to the ward. 

“He has remained stable ever since and has continued to make remarkable progress, The CMD said in an earlier statement.

    PRESIDENT BUHARI’S SON YUSUF DISCHARGED FROM HOSPITAL BUT AIRLIFTED TO GERMANY FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATIONS ON HIS HEAD INJURIES.

    LIES OF ASO ROCK WILL NEVER END.

    BUHARI IS A QUIET LOOTER AND A MEGA FOREX FRAUDSTER. THEY WILL NEVER TELL NIGERIANS THAT BUHARI’S SON HAS BEEN AIRLIFTED AND ADMITTED IN A GERMAN HOSPITAL FOR HIS HEAD INJURIES.

    Great news that a young man’s life has been saved by the courageous and talented NIGERIAN doctors and nurses at that hospital. I am glad he has survived.

    Now hopefully a courageous and talented Police force will now finger his collar and consider charging him for dangerous driving and endangering the lives of others when he and his entitled and rich friends made the decision to power bike race in the city centre of Abuja that fateful night.

    But I guess not. After all, this is the country that the Senate President, Governors, Ministers and others trooped to sit by the bedside of this young man. The Health Minister who I am sure had not spent as much time in public hospitals since attaining that office was virtually doing night vigil by the bedside.

    And this sorry tale is the clearest example of how the Nigerian political class demonstrates that #onlytheirlivesmatter.

    What we aren’t being told is that certificate forger and perjurer Buhari’s son has been evacuated by air ambulance to St. Joseph’s hospital in Germany. The Buhari family is again raiding our treasury for overseas medical treatment.

    Nigerians spending 90 percent of their time praying for the health of Buhari and his family. It is time to commit such an equal amount of time to pray for this country.

    Well done and congratulations to the medical team that saved the life of the young man.. This is prove that with adequate investment in health care, we can end medical tourism, that is depleting our foreign exchange.

    Buhari should also lead by example, ensuring all is medical requirements are met in Nigeria.
