President Buhari's son, Yusuf Buhari. [TheNewsGuru.com]

The health of Yusuf, son of President Muhammadu Buhari, who was admitted into Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja, on December 26, 2017, following injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident, has improved remarkably and he is ready to be discharged.

This news was contained in a statement Friday by presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina.

Mr. Adesina quoted another statement by the medical director of the hospital, Felix Ogedegbe, reproduced below.

“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 stabilization, 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. He is now ready to be discharged.

“His extremely speedy response to treatment so far is testimony to the world-class early care he has received here in Cedarcrest, Abuja. We are grateful to His Excellency, President Buhari and Her Excellency the First Lady Mrs. Aisha Buhari for the confidence in us and for allowing us to look after Yusuf. This show of confidence goes a long way to strengthen our collective belief in our resolve to offer world-class health care locally. We are extremely grateful to our entire hospital team for their dedication and hard work during this period.

“We are also grateful to the Honorable Minister of Health, the Honorable Minister of State for Health, and the eminent advisory team of specialists assembled by the Honorable Minister of Health who supported us in the course of looking after Yusuf. We are grateful to all Nigerians who prayed for Yusuf, his family and his carers. His response to treatment so far is clear testimony to answered prayers.

“We did note some very misleading reports about this incident making the rounds in some social media outlets. Most of them would not ordinarily need to be responded to. Suffice to say that there was only one person involved in this incident. No one else required treatment for this incident or its aftermath. Yusuf’s friend was not involved in the accident and did not sustain any injuries whatsoever.

“Her Excellency the First Lady was not at any time treated for shock and she was not admitted into Cedarcrest at any time. In addition, Cedarcrest Hospitals has remained open to other in-patients and out-patients and at no time were any patients denied access to the hospital.”

Nigeria is now Germany.

    • Oguntade

      Shame on all of you not seeing how evil, wicked, Buhari is. Since you have been in Germany, if you live there tho, can a dog be butchered on the street of Germany without uproar, the following day? Every of you all not having empath for how innocents are being butchered daily coz you all are safe in your place of abode… Posterity shall judge you all.

      • Malik Isah

        god will punish your hatred filled mind and mouth Oguntade. god will punish you for manufacturing lies and hatred.

        • Oguntade

          As thunder and everything called evil will destroy you and your generation to generations generations unborn. Nemesis crisis will abide nd dwell in your abode till eternity. Sorrow tears nd blood will be your portion and all your cohort. Konida fun ee laye de orun…… Eranko nan un se bi eyan.

  • Sword of Damocles

    I am proud of the Healthcare facility that treated this young man. I hope to hear more stories like this about our fatherland, that makes people like me feel pride for the VOLK land back yonder. Black power…

    • So oju abe niko

      not sure of your “black power” thing, but I applaud the rest of your message. This is definitely a very good news for Nigeria. It sends a message to the rest of us that we can rely on some Nigerian hospitals for some critical medical interventions.

    • Sword of Damocles

      I am compelled by shame really to come back & amend my remarks: It appears that the Presidential spokesperson was dissembling. It appears that the President’s son, Yusuf was flown out to Germany this morning. In my opinion , this should have been reflected in the original release, however I am not surprised coming form a President who used tax payer money to treat himself back to health for 6months, and felt no compunction to tell those same tax-payers why he had to be absent from the country for 6mths, claiming PRIVACY. hubris, unfortunately he is not the only member of Nigeria’s ruling elite who afflicted by this shameful ailment, SMMFH

      • Yego V

        I applaud your courage and honesty

  • Joe

    May God save, protect and separate you from the wickedness of your father Yusuf.

    • Yego V

      How?

  • Oguntade

    Agent of death like your principal “Buhari” yeah?

    • Malik Isah

      God will punish you oguntade for insisting on maligning Buhari. your hatred will consume you and everyone like you.

      • Oguntade

        What do you know about about God nitwit? Blood sucking, raping, killing God? May you die miserably as you evil fulani killed innocent people around.

        • Malik Isah

          Hehehehehehe. Na you sabi God. Continue what you are saying. Hatred will consume you

    • Dr Bunmi Binitie

      God forbid! I dont have anything to do with an agent of death! And PMB is not an agent of death.

      By your comments I can see that you, Oguntade, are an agent of death. I counsel you to repent for it is written that a man must reap what he sows.

      • Oguntade

        Am not amazed at you native doctor. You pretend you know christ but you align with blood suckers to be sucking innocents blood. Posterity will judge you

      • Oguntade

        As you and your principal will reap the evil you are perpetrating in the land. Judas walk with christ but what ends him?You better repent before you perish. Evil doers

      • Julius

        That’s the same imbecile that trolls you under different names…you can guess who that is. The murdrfucker moron is a coward…see him using Yoruba name to spew his bargabe. He hates women and that include his own mother. Happy weekend sis !

        • Oguntade

          Smile! Don’t go there bruv, OK. I know since when we use to defend Buhari together against the yanmirin. Tread carefully

          • Julius

            Then act civil. Criticize but not insult and abuse. That’s what we used to do..if I believe you.

          • Oguntade

            Lol! Lenu ee julius?

          • Julius

            I’m scared ! .. smh ,Enjoy yourself please!!

      • KELLOGGS

        Do you think you are 2 years old? Get off the internet!

        • Dr Bunmi Binitie

          How dare you? Who are you to tell me what to do? Did you set up the internet?

          Get away from me back to hell where you came from, in Jesus Name

          • Julius

            Don’t mind him. He is a troll

  • Sarah

    This is very good news. I wish Yusuf continued speedy and full recovery

    • Oguntade

      How I wish those his father abandoned and hypocritically allowed to be butchered can have such good news

      • Julius

        We all do I think but, we can also acknowledge the good news for the young man.

        • Oguntade

          Yeah right bro. I wish the young man well

    • Yego V

      If only you would express just SOME sympathy to families whose fathers mothers and children are being butchered by herdsmen. Unfortunately they weren’t even on luxury rides

  • Julius

    Indeed..God is indeed awesome !

    • KELLOGGS

      Felix Ogedegbe, the Medical Director is a southerner. The south shall rise again.

  • M

    Lies by a liar. He was jetted off to Germany this morning on Nigeria’s private jet. Do them think they are dealing with morons?

    • KELLOGGS

      Felix Ogedegbe, the Medical Director is a southerner.

      • Olusola

        …and cared for Fulani man whose tribesmen are busy killing other Nigerians!

      • Yego V

        I’m not aware that money has southern colour.

    • duwdu

      Just like your Nnamdi Kanu convinced the gullible that the person he saw return following that long medical treatment in the UK was not the real Buhari, abi? LOL at you, M.

    • Sola Akinwande

      This nameless person, why can’t you just for once appreciate the wonders of God. Bad belle is injurious to your health.

    • Du Covenant

      Once a looser, always will be one!

  • KELLOGGS

    A southerner, the doctor…
    Always bring life to them.
    Whereas, they bring death and destruction of the country.

    • Dr Bunmi Binitie

      Who is this? Be gone, hater!!

  • Sola Akinwande

    All glory be unto God for His grace and mercy. The cynics have been put to shame. We appreciate everyone who has made this recovery possible. God will not forget your labour of love. Congratulations to the family of the President.

    • Otile

      The guy is not yet out of the woods, he just left town to get healing in Duchesland. Right now good marabouts are firing up prayers so that he comes back to us hale and hearty. You see, this kind of self-inflicted injury is like suicide bombing, most often it leaves the bomber brain-dead or with paralysis.

    • Dr Bunmi Binitie

      Amen and Amen! Indeed labour of love…

    • Yego V

      Stop using the name of God in vain. Yusuf can easily appear before NTA for 10 seconds and say thank you. He doesn’t have to do so from Germany, LATER

  • Julius

    Ty!!

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    The man Yusuf has not recovered and he has been flown by air ambulance to Europe accompanied by his mother and medical crew from Nigeria..

    THIS IS A GOVERNMENT OF LIES AND PROPAGANDA.

  • Du Covenant

    Without details of the nature of this young man’s injury, it is difficult to make categorical statements here. For the sworn haters, one advice is, life is so precious you NEVER know what awaits you just down the road and how it will all end so be careful what you wish others!!!.

  • man

    hehe was he even in an accident? how did he do the enjoy enjoy enjoy ride with SSS ??? maybe propaganda by what they are saying.

  • Otile

    Your Amen is like amen of the devil. Don’t say it in public.

  • Otile

    Jusuf Imam Buhari, sorry guy your father’s wickedness has stolen the sympathy many people have for you. It is hard for people who have lost loved ones or suffered cruelty at the hands of your father to wish your family well. Many Yorubas who are weeping for your injury are not sincere, they are praising you and your father with their lips but are cursing with their hearts.

  • Yego V

    Adesina will remain a disgrace. First and foremost, Yusuf dead or alive has very little significance to Nigerians, except of course his family and other extensions. I’m inclined to believe the boy needs further medical attention and thus they concocted this idea: Discharge him and then fly him abroad under the disguise of ” CHECKUP “..What a hopeless and crooked government. How come you are giving us medical update about a SON, including a report from the hospital and would not care to do same (if not better ) for his father. Sadly his father is the president and therefore our RIGHT to know about his health and not that of his family. As much as I wish Yusuf well, his fathers wickedness will surely be exposed. No man can mock God.

  • Julius

    lolz…I’ll kick his ass from Lagos to Owerri…
