    Na wao! This must be serious.

    • Usher- Join The Revolution

      yep, brain hemorrhage or something similar. If not attended to quickly might result to loss of memory, paralysis or both. Lost a friend to powerbike accident and I don’t know the fun in it.

      • Lanre

        It shows how much mumudity is in you. You can even tell us that your friend died. What you fail to realize in your mumudity is that that unfortunate friend of yours should have survived had he had an equipped hospital to go to in Nigeria. How many years do you require as president to set up a single functional hospital? Does Nigeria have the money? If yes, then what excuse does dumb Buhari have?

        • Julius

          So Buhari is the only president we ever had in Nigeria ? Couldn’t Jonathan who was the president when a barrel of oil was selling in the hundreds of $$ or even Baba Obj have built a single functional hospital ? Moron,you think the hospital would have been completed by now if Buhari has started building one when he took over from Jonathan ? Hatred will never let you see and reason well.

        • Malik Isah

          Lanre, you brilliant o sotey you even know that you can set up a world standard hospital in weeks. Clap for your brilliant self

        Premium Times is doing a yeoman’s job to keep Nigerians aware of plans to fly Buhari’s son abroad.
        This is critical news because it shows the government of Buhari itself does not think it has made the
        hospitals in Nigeria safe, and will rather escape abroad with their own family members, than die the
        cheap death their mostly hilarious CHANGE government has totally condemned Nigerians to suffer.

        Premium Times is a big disappointment to humanity and to the world
        at large. Look at Premium Times telling us there will be “details
        later”. Is it after President Muhamadu Buhari has withdrawn millions of
        dollars from NNPC and the Central Bank that Premium Times will now be crying
        crocodile tears to say: EXCLUSIVE: BUHARI RAIDS CENTRAL BANK FOR HIS SON’S
        SAKE. What is the use of such nonsense story?

        Is prevention not better than curing? Premium Times cannot even condemn
        Buhari for the flying abroad of his son when hospitals are in Nigeria. I will
        not read Premium Times again because of this story. I am going. I want truth in
        my life, not somebody that will be telling me “details later”. Look Mr. Man,
        i am typing this from Mobil petrol station now on my tablet. The fuel crisis
        has become worse today. Fighting everywhere at petrol stations.
        Premium Times is telling me “details later”! Nonsense!!!

  • Waandu

    So, what is lacking in Abuja that necessitated the transfer – is it CT scanner, MRI, neurosurgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, operating theatres or intensive care units?

    Muhamadu Buhari and his family liability

    Wait, wait. To be flown abroad? Who is to pay for that? I am to pay from my tax for Buhari’s son
    who was playing with motorcycle with full tank of petrol on his Vespa motorcycle when the whole
    country is suffering without any single petrol to buy? No, no, no. I will rather riot over this sort of
    insult. The father of this boy spent almost four months this year in a mansion in London and we
    were made to pay all the expenses of the father. Now comes the son, who fell down from Vespa.
    We are to pay for that again? No way. Everybody must come out for protest on this nonsense.
    We are not here to serve the Buhari family. We must all say no to this family liability of Buhari.

    • Watch man

      Lol! But I think you have a valid point.

      BUHARI MUST SHOW FAITH IN NIGERIA AND ALLOW THE NATIONAL HOSPITAL TAKE CARE OF HIS SON.

      IT IS VERY UN-PATRIOTIC OF PRESIDENT BUHARI TO SHOW HE HAS NO FAITH IN HIS OWN GOVERNMENT.

  • UNEMPLOYED 9jerian

    I wish the young man death as many times as possible. Is he not a human being like Mama Useni’s son who sells apples on the streets of Kaduna? How many of the survivals of automobile accident on Christmas day in several parts of Nigeria and that of the Kano wedding victims were sent abroad? Useless president. Useless Son. May that aircraft that will take him abroad crash beneath shark infested waters.

  • Sarah

    Aisha should have asked them to fly him out to UK or Germany immediately as a mother. Buhari is NOT proactive with most things.
    With most head crashes fluid gathers in the skull (hydrocephaly) causing coma and eventual death. If the Nigerian hospital cannot detect or remove excess fluid from the skull, then keeping him in Nigeria is a waste of precious time.
    Sunday Awoniyi died from similar complications of head injury. Michael Schumacher has been in a vegetative state for years thanks to German medical technology.

      @disqus_AfcKLH8pp5:disqus

      I am a fiscal conservative, actually i am a budget hawk.
      I am writing this letter because i am worried that Buhari family expenses
      could cause budget deficit in the year 2018. We expect Buhari to go to London
      early in the year to follow up on his blood transfusion. He will be there with his son,
      who will be costing taxpayers’ money in a nearby hospital. A presidential jet will be
      parked permanently at Heathrow for the father and the son at daily overnight charge.
      I am more worried about budget deficit than i am about the health problems reported.

  • Rosemary

    I wish him quickest death wishes because that is exactly what his father wishes all Nigerians.

    • Malik Isah

      Rosemary, you will die before Yusuf.

  • emmanuel

    Mumu president. Everything is in London. Do you even realize that a woman is PM in UK? Well, a man who does not even know his age will not have the presence of mind to know what Nigerians suffer from. Ediorts and useless and hopeless leaders. May the hottest parts of hell be reserved for all those politicians and leaders who care about only themselves and their families and not about the general population.

  • Quickest Death Wishes

    Quickest death wishes is what I wish this boy. Not because I am wicked but because that is exacly what his father wishes all other poor Nigerians.

    • Mike Dawodu

      Maybe that death will come to you first and in what way has pmb prevented you from realizing your life goals.Lazy people always look for excuses to justify their failure in life.Go and find something useful to do,pmb did not and has not stopped you from fulfilling your life dreams if you ever had any but I really understand you, your hatred for pmb is driving you crazy,I pray it drives you straight to hell or yaba left, that’s where you belong for wishing another human being like yourself untimely death.It’s pmb’s time, Mr wailer,your biafraud or death to atiku or death group with your looting party are all dead on arrival, you keep wailing until the devil comes to take your life.

      • Malik Isah

        So it shall be

      • Okpewho David

        Mike. No right thinking person should wish another dead. But this government must provide the basic amenities – light, good roads, water, so we can find a serene environment to do our legitimate business. Ok. Yusuf will live

    • Malik Isah

      You will die before him.

  • Elijah David

    Wishing the young man dead is never the best thing for anyone to do and neither could one count it as the will of God. God will not impute the mistake of the father to the son. They both have different destiny. We should learn to empathize and sympathize with others and above all wish others the good we wish ourselves.

    • Malik Isah

      Well, they can wish all they want but surely back to sender.

  • Frank Bassey

    Beautiful!!!

  • man

    they should fly him immediately to london. this is the problem many nigerians are facing. simple injuries, the hospitals can not treat. if you no get plane money, that is it. the govt must understand that this problem must be fixed.

    the boy must enjoy the best bikes, the best everything, enjoy enjoy enjoy.
