President Muhammadu Buhari, his wife, Aisha, and their family have thanked “all men and women of goodwill”, for their prayers and best wishes for the president’s son, Yusuf, to recover after a motor bike accident.

The president said on Friday that Yusuf had recovered and was ready to be discharged after treatment in an intensive care unit and later, ward, of an Abuja hospital.

In a statement by Mr. Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina, the family appreciated the “overwhelming show of love and solidarity” which had come their way since Yusuf was involved 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 said.

The statement said Yusuf had been discharged from Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja, Friday, following what the Chief Medical Director described as his “extremely speedy response to treatment.”

    So Mr. President will use another man to thank Nigerians for their prayers and good will for the recovery of his own son. Does it really look descent enough?

    • Otile

      Maybe he has lost his voice, 2 years ago he lost his hearing when Lagos Boys and Avengers yelled at him not to visit their places. It is most likely we are now dealing with a mere shadow of what was General Muhammadu Buhari. O ma se oo.

    The 73 dead people in makurdi has no one to thank for them . They hav all died as a result of wrong leadership……GOD is watching.

  • Ayinde

    yet it was reported he has been flown to Germany. Let the Lie Continue.

    Do the Nigerians PMB thanked include the multitude of homes mourning for their dear ones massacred by Fulani herdsmen in Benue?

    “The president said on Friday that Yusuf had recovered and was ready to be discharged after treatment …….” Premium Times

    @ Kay: Note the above from paragraph 2 of the article and stop blaming Ayinde.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Thanks for that observation, Ojomaje.

      But the recovery would have been from the coma as opposed to one from the accident itself.

      I however, concede that could open up the entire statement for misinterpretation.

      Ayinde, my apologies.
