ABUJA – THE Presidency has continued to maintain a sealed lips on the health state of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf, who is currently being attended to by a team of medical doctors in the intensive ward of a private hospital in Abuja following a bike accident he had on 26th December, 2017.
An online report had claimed that the young Buhari was to be transferred to Germany for proper treatment over the brain injury he sustained in the accident.
But the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed when asked on the true situation of the matter, said the issue was a private matter.
He said, “I am sure you know that this is purely a private matter. I am sure you will appreciate that.”
However, a source close to the Buhari family told Vanguard that there was no veracity in the report that Yusuf will be flown abroad for further medical treatment.
Yusuf had on Tuesday, 26th December 201, suffered a head injury and multiple fractures, following a power bike crash in Abuja.
It was learnt that the crash occurred at night when he, alongside a friend were racing in Gwarinpa area of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.
The President’s only son was said to be unconscious before the mother, Aisha Buhari was alerted.
Reports said “She ordered that he be immediately rushed to Cedarcrest Hospital, where he is currently receiving treatment.”
The young Buhari bagged a Master’s degree in 2016 from a University in the United Kingdom.
The President’s son alongside his sister Zahra Buhari, graduated from the University of Surrey, Guildford, England in a well publicized celebration.
