Nigerians have reacted on their social media accounts following report that President Buhari’s son Yusuf had been flown to Germany for medical treatment after he sustained severe head injury in a power bike accident on Tuesday night in Abuja.
They took to Twitter and Facebook to blame Buhari-led APC government for failed health system in the country. Read below:
@Semirah44: “Wish him quick recovery, But it is a shame!! What a country!!!! If they had taken care of the country and improved the healthcare system, would there be any need flying any one abroad? A lot of people have died has a result of having an accident that led to head injury due to the fact that the hospital here do not have what it takes to treat them and the patient in the other hand, lacks money to fly abroad for treatment. Now look at you Mr president, you refused to take care of home “Nigeria”; many Nigerians don’t have that means and you can fly your child out for treatment. It is well!!
@mymelanin: “If he was the son of Nobody, who will fly him out? He must die too so they can feel the pain of parents who lose their children everyday due to lack of good health care system.
@yvonneokotie: “Why will people be praying for someone’s death? Nigerians fear God. wishing him speedy recovery.
@andee_lurva: “If there were facilities in Nigeria, he wouldn’t have needed to be flown out. Just saying.
@boujee_iphe: “Why not St. Nicholas Hospital. President that doesn’t patronise his country is that one president…na tax payers money dem go use treat this one oh.
@okey: “Why not treat him here, yeye government that can not even take care of our own hospital, put things in place for everybody to belong.
@adaakuego: “Not one good hospital in Nigeria and your father wants another term. What goes around comes around. Selfish shameless visionless corrupt leaders. Get well soon dear.
@faithfuelor: “Mixed feelings for me..The human in me wants him to be fine but the Nigerian in me wants otherwise because his father has caused many people to lose their lives..Anyway let the will of God be done.
@folsy: “We that have headache cos of fuel scarcity nko…Biko someone should come and send me transport to leave my village cos am having headache already because of this fuel hike and transport fare.
@Nnaemeka: “I wonder where Yusuf got much petrol he was wasting on grooving & gallivanting when people are in excruciating pain as a result of fuel scarcity. Well, I wish him well & quick recovery even though that his father is tormenting & torturing us, Yusuf needs our prayers right now, the race is individually & our deeds will be judged individually as well.
@Ekwuojo: “You have refused to build Nigeria hospitals and bring it to world class standard even after two years in governance, and you claimed you have brought change to Nigeria. We the poor cannot afford to travel abroad but Buhari and his families visit abroad at their wish to access health.
@Johnsteve: “Buhari receive treatment in abroad and his son now in abroad for the same treatment. Abeg is the change that APC promised us? Get well soon boy.
@Goldcomzy: “Keep flying your people to abroad and don’t come and make standardise hospitals in Nigeria. Keep flying, you never see anything.
@OkutaKen: “Mad people. Keep flying abroad for medical treatment while our hospitals are shit holes. I pray he doesn’t make it.
