President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf Buhari, has returned to the country after undergoing further treatment overseas. The president was all smiles as he received his son Yusuf, who is in a better shape now and is expected to resume his normal life.
President was all smiles as he received his son, Yusuf Buhari, who arrived Nigeria last night after his medical trip to Germany. Yusuf who was involved in a ghastly motorbike accident in December last year in which he boke his limb and sustained a head injury, was transferred to Germany for further medical attention after undergoing a surgery in an Abuja based hospital.
He was received at the airport by the Minister of State for Health.
Although it could not be ascertained where Yusuf had gone for treatment, This Day gathered that Yusuf, who arrived the country Monday night, was in a better shape and is expected to resume a normal life.
At the time of his accident, a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, had said Yusuf Buhari was allegedly drag racing with his friend, when the accident happened on December 26.
According to the statement,
“Yusuf broke a limb and sustained an injury to the head as a result. He has undergone surgery at a clinic in Abuja. He is in a stable condition.”
Yusuf Buhari had first undergone successful emergency surgery at the Cedarcrest Hospitals, Abuja, carried out by a team of neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons.
As Yusuf’s health improved, he was transferred from the intensive care unit of the hospital to the ward, following which he was certified stable and discharged.
But sources in the presidency disclosed Monday that shortly after he was discharged from Cedarcrest, he departed the country quietly due to the sensitivity surrounding his treatment abroad.
When contacted Monday on his return, the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the President, Mr. Femi Adesina, declined to comment on the issueAdesina, who sounded irritable, said:
“The boy has a right to his private life. We can’t be talking about him and his movement.”
