Ajimobi prays for Yusuf Buhari’s quick recovery

Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has reacted to the bike accident of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf.

Ajimobi urged Nigerians to pray for the quick recovery of Buhari’s son, calling the incident a temporary setback.

Yusuf Buhari suffered head injury after he was involved in a bike accident on Tuesday night.

In a statement by the Governor’s Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Mr. Yomi Layinka, Ajimobi described the unfortunate incident as depressing.

“The abiding grace of God that allowed the ebullient young man to survive the crash will see to his quick and complete recovery. It is indeed heartwarming to hear that he is in a stable condition now and responding well to treatment.

“On behalf of the government and people of Oyo State, I pray that Yusuf will soon be back on his feet. The incident is a temporary setback and one of the vicissitudes of life. He will come out of it stronger and will live long to fulfil his destiny.

“In the African culture of being our brother’s keeper, I urge Nigerians to continue to remember the first family in their their prayers and thoughts in this difficult period.”
