Head Injury: This Report says Yusuf Buhari is to be Airlifted to Germany



This Report says Yusuf Buhari is to be Airlifted to Germany - BellaNaija

Son of the president Yusuf Buhari is to be airlifted to Germany for further treatment following his head injury, Sahara Reporters reports.

Yusuf had suffered a head injury and a broken limb after he was involved in a motorcycle crash on December 26, 2017.

Reports had long since claimed he would be transferred to Germany, but Yusuf had undergone surgery in Nigeria instead, at Cedarcrest Hospital in Abuja.

In the Sahara Reporters report, Yusuf is said to be airlifted to Germany Wednesday night for further medical treatment.

He will reportedly be transferred to the St. Josefs Hospital in Wiesbaden, and will be accompanied by his mother, the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, the daughter of the President, Halima Buhari-Sheriff,  the personal physician to the first lady, Kamal Mohammed, and three other aides.

      And Nigerian tax payers will foot the bill as they watch their loved ones die from lack of malaria or diarrheal medicine. Isaiah 10:1-4 is a declaration on all Nigerian leaders who have left us in the pits. God will not turn his eye on your wickedness. You can afford this. Please pay for Yusuf with your own resources or get Zahra’s husband to support. Nigerians should not pay when their loved ones are dying as we read this. It is such a bitter pill to swallow. Best of luck with Yusuf. Nigerian fake docs already messed with your case.

    ofcourse he will be airlifted out… that one is not rocket science.
    when we are not able to handle anything but Malaria… is it brain injury?

    I hope Germany can help him because sometimes when they touch you in Nigeria your chances become slimmer. All the best

      @ceetoo. You just posted a senseless comment .Same Nigerian medical practitioners whom you insult are going out en masse to UK and Arabian countries. Reports have it that Nigerian doctors are doing very well overseas. Do you want to know the reason why? I will tell you. They are been trained in a crude way without nescseesary equipment. They can make diagnosis just using symptoms alone. When they go to other countries in which hospitals are well equipped with advanced state of the art equipment, it becomes VERY easy for them.Don’t blame the medical practitioners, blame your government who can’t provide even a common Computed Tomography (CT) scan for government hospitals.Go round and see how the doctors are suffering to manage patients.

      Same difference… you are saying the same thing.
      If you are a medical practitioner and you feel “blamed” from my comment then maybe you really should be blamed because I made no reference to you or your profession. There are many reasons for our poor medical services in Nigeria and the personnel (Doctors et al) cannot completely be absolved of it.

      If you live in Nigeria and you have issues but no MAJOR medical challenge you have plenty to be grateful for.

      BTW The government (past and present) is/are ineptitude… we all already agreed on that.

      @ eby, but who is the government? We and said Dr’s are the government. I have a cousin that went to school at OAU (medical), yet I remember 10 years ago I was talking to him about epidural, my cousin who was practicing at the time had no clue about it. He now practices in Canada but the truth is that while in Nigeria my cousin just like many of us had a non-chalant attitude towards his vocation. He was quick to always blame the system. However, when he moved to his new Country of residence, where laws are different, his attitude changed. First, he had to do some fellowship deal, then to get his license, I know how hard dude worked and studied. The high mortality rate in Nigeria is not only due to lack of infrastructure and we know it, it is why Nigerian Drs can’t just pack their bags and begin practicing in order countries. There is a lack of knowledge as well, we hear about tons of misdiagnosis and mistakes. A friend of mine just had to go in for an avoidable surgery due to a “mistake” that was made after she had D & C due to miscarriage. If it was in any other country the Dr and the hospital will be sued. Nigerian Drs that leave the shores of the Country to practice are aware of this. This keeps them on their toes, same Drs in same scenario in Nigeria do not care. That is not the government, that is not lack of equipment, that is a lack of empathy, lack of regard for human life, a loss of our sense of humanity. Is it Adanna’s misdiagnosis, when it was too early to detect a heartbeat, or the recently mentioned actor that was also misdiagnosed in Nigeria? That is not some higher body at fault that is a lack of knowledge and just us (We the people, the goverrnment) not caring. The sooner we begin ti realize and accept that we are our government and the individuals in authority are only a reflection of us and our value system, the sooner we will begin to dig ourselves from the rot we find ourselves in.

      That comment is not senseless, he said sometimes. If you have not seen someone rendered useless or badly managed by a Nigerian doctor some of us are victims and know other victims as well. These same Nigeria doctors has as well helped many back to good health. Thanks ceetoo for your mature reply. The most important thing now is that we pray for Yusuf to fully recover.

      I don’t think the doctors should be blamed Why? Because they perform elsewhere. That knowledge should inform us that if they can perform almost excellently else where, the environment is aiding them. E.g.. if a child who gets bad grades in school is taken else where and obtains a 1st class. Guess what? we won’t blame the child. Why? If he were to be blamed he should fail woefully everywhere.

      oh so sad…. maybe because he came from a poor family.

      BN I’m wondering why that wicked comment in reply to Sasha passed through your scrutiny?

    • Response to Anon

      January 10, 2018 at 3:09 pm

      @Anon Because it’s the pure truth
      There are poor families with people who have had injuries like Yusuf’s or even worse and yet they have died because they did not have the type of money Mr. Buhari does to fly their loved ones out for special treatment. Their injuries were important too. Corruption or Kwarapsheun is a bane to development indeed
      BN my comment is sensible so post it


    January 10, 2018 at 2:55 pm

    Why do i have the impression he’s been in Germany ALL THIS WHILE??

    And please, what about Bashir??? Was he taken to Germany too?

    • Fizzy

      January 10, 2018 at 5:27 pm

      What about Bashir?? It was not a collision between the both of them. You people should read up news outside BN.

      2019 should come so we can vote this liability of a President out. Get well Yusuf. I say this only becos I am a mother. I really do not care. A thousand and one people die everyday simply becos, they cannot not access good medicare.

    I will take that comment about training “in crude ways” with a grain of salt! When it comes to medicine, you cannot compare it with mechanic trainees in Naija who fix cars the hardcore and crude way and frankly even that has many factors to consider. For one most are fixing old cars that don’t have computer mechanisms. Unfortunately, most cars are becoming computerized so even that crude knowledge is getting ready to go out the window! Medicine like most other areas is evolving with advanced technology. Though I have a problem with this to an extent, even if a doctor has profound knowledge on any given subject matter, the technology to aid the patient is vital and many hospitals even our teaching hospitals are not equipped with what it takes. Our doctors may be leaving the Nigerian shores and thriving, but you best believe it hasn’t been handed on a platter. They work their behinds off to get there. Some make it, some don’t. Even something as minute (in the large scheme of things) as medical terminology…that’s the first thing you must master when you come from somewhere like Naija.

    To be honest I think the government is useless. The only way Nigeria will improve its healthcare system is through private practice. Nigerian doctors around the globe who are highly skilled can come home and open hospitals with state of the art equipment. If they can’t find it themselves there are investors waiting to throw money at anyone who can come up with new innovations in healthcare. Nigeria’s healthcare system is a code that can be cracked, we just need people willing, and able to crack that code. Watch …in the next five years we will see Indian, Turkish, Chinese investors taking over this initiative in Nigeria. Our govt won’t do it
