      Spot on Tony. Speedy recovery to you Yusuf.

      Look at them bloody hypocrites. While other doctors arround he world are achieving breakthroughs in medicine, you are all posing for celebrity picture .
      Correct me if I am wrong the age of the least of you is not less than 60years , and you are all there killing young dreams so you can shine .

      Where are the young doctors in Nigeria oh !!! I forgot you frustrated them into moving out of the country where they all celebrated and winning accolades “in the abroad”. Shame on all of you for cheapening this calling . Buhari still has the guts to contest again with your failing health and abysmal record we Dey wait you

      Yusuf, may God help you through your discovery. But, em, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY? Last time we checked, the Health Minister is in charge of the health of Nigerians, and not personal physician to any elected official or relatives who have suffered health setbacks. If I called your attention to my uncle’s plight in the village will you take charge of his health? You need to get the f**k off this medical team and return to serving Nigerians. Zahra, please ask your husband to use some of the oil returns to ship your bros abroad for proper treatment. You could also sell some of your gold to get him help he needs.

    My question is: is Yusuf’s life and wellbeing more or paramount to others life. Is this how every patient with head injury is being fussed on in your country. This is an insult to the citizen’s intelligency. I am ashamed of this pompous team of fools here.

    Thousands of poor people are left to accept their fate and wait for death because they can not afford basic healthcare and here we have the midget of a minister of health leading a stupid headless delegation to tend to the son of the vision-less passionless detached president of the country. We have been cursed with the most idiotic people at the helms of affairs in this country. We are being managed by a bunch of fools and sycophants. They don’t even deserve to be referred to as leaders. Every minister, governor, senator, uniform man etc are a bunch of purposeless mofos. May God bless our future because our present cannot be saved at this point. How long will we continue to cry as a nation? Why have we allowed ourselves to be treated this way? Public office holders sit atop the life chain at the detriment of the populace. 80% of Nigerians cannot afford three square meals, good housing, quality affordable education, healthcare and a means for survival. We have been praying for Nigeria since I was in primary school. What has changed? Well, it’s gotten worse, that’s the change we have been served. OBJ, Yar’adua, Jonathan, Buhari all of them ZERO!!! Politicians and their fellow armed robbers building castles and cars and whisking their children to the obodo abroad while our educational institutions remain wastelands. Our primary healthcare system is nonexistent. Not to talk of specialist healthcare. No electricity after 57 years of independence. No good roads. No efficient transport system. No entrepreneurial support. No jobs. A country with crude oil under the ground is having fuel scarcity. Is importing refined fuel. Contracts being shared to family and friends of the goats at the top. I shall rest here. Today was not a good day to see this stupid headline. Heck, no day in Nigeria is a good day. Get well soon Yusuf. It is not your fault. As a true child of God, I will continue to pray for your quick recovery during my daily prayers. God bless Nigeria.

    Hmm… I’m not surprised. I’m more surprised at the outrage I’m seeing in the comments. Oh you didn’t know we had poor people before?

    They should take him to London. His father spent one year there, they will attend to him based on his father’s legacy.

    Since he is just first son, he can stay there till 2019 and no one will question why he is there.

    Or are they using the funds for campaigning?
