First stabilization, he was placed in intensive care and successfully underwent emergency surgeries the next morning by our team of neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons.

“Over the next week his condition improved remarkably and he was transferred from intensive care to the ward. It has remained stable since and has continued to make remarkable progress. He is now ready to be demobilized.

“His extremely rapid response to treatment so far is a testament to the early, world-class care he has received here in Cedarcrest, Abuja. We are grateful to Her Excellency President Buhari and Her Excellency First Lady Mrs. Aisha Buhari for their trust in us and for allowing us to take care of Yusuf. This display of confidence goes a long way in strengthening our collective belief in our determination to deliver world-class healthcare locally. We are extremely grateful to the entire hospital team for their dedication and hard work during this time.

“We are also grateful to the Honorable Minister of Health, the Honorable Minister of State for Health and the distinguished advisory team of specialists brought together by the Honorable Minister of Health who supported us in making in charge of Yusuf. We are grateful to all Nigerians who prayed for Yusuf, his family and his caregivers. His response to treatment so far is a clear testimony to answered prayers.

“We have noted some very misleading reports of this incident making the rounds on some social media. Most of them would not normally need to be treated. Suffice to say that there was only one person involved in this incident. No one else needed treatment for this incident or its aftermath. Yusuf’s friend was not involved in the crash and suffered no injuries.

“Her Excellency the First Lady was never treated for shock and she was never admitted to Cedarcrest at any time. In addition, Cedarcrest Hospitals remained open to other inpatients and outpatients and at no time was access to the hospital denied to patients.
