“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 was later 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.
Yusuf, allegedly owns two plush hotels in Abuja and is having another constructed for him in Dubai. These revelations were made to Journalists by a business associate of the younger Buhari .
The wealthy businessman, an American in the oil and gas industry, claimed that the president’s son was seeking to invest in the American’s other business in Nigeria – high speed broadband. To impress the American and demonstrate that he was a major player in terms of funding, Yusuf Buhari took him to his five-star hotels in Abuja and claimed that he had another one in the pipeline in Dubai.
The American said he was surprised about Buhari’s possessions and told the young man, who is in his mid-twenties and graduated in July from Surrey University:
“You are not even 30 yet. How can a young man like you own places like this?”Buhari is said to have replied:
“Everybody had their own opportunity. It is now our turn. What do you expect? We may not be here tomorrow”.
The American then laughed as he recalled the incident saying: “Your president is meant to be fighting corruption”, he laughed again adding, “see how he is fighting corruption”. The businessman also said that the drop in oil price has affected his main interest in the country – lifting crude oil. However, he felt things were looking up in the broadband business.
