Buhari’s Son Had His Surgery In Nigeria, Not Germany - Health Minister
Nigeria’s Minister of Health, Professor Issac Adewole said on Friday that President Muhammadu Buhari son, Yusuf, only had a rehabilitation in Germany and not a surgery.
Speaking on Channels Television programme, Hard Copy, Adewole stressed that Yusuf did not travel to Germany for medical treatment.
“The President asked his son to be treated in Nigeria. Even when people were clamouring that his son should be flown abroad, he said no.
“He just went to Germany for rehabilitation. He had his surgery in Nigeria. “I am telling you that the son was treated in Nigeria. Take that from me as the Honourable Minister,” Adewole said.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf, broke one of his limbs in a bike accident on Boxing Day in Abuja, December last year.
Speaking further on the state of Healthcare in Nigeria, the Health Minister said Nigerians are secretive about details of their healthcare, hence the reason why many prefer private to public hospitals.
“Nigerians are so secretive. We also lack data and information management. The average Nigerian does not want his medical condition exposed,” he said.
