Meanwhile, a statement issued by Femi Adesina, the special adviser to the president on media and publicity reacted to the statement earlier made by the hospital.

Adesina’s statement read: ''The hospital would not have, ordinarily, respond to some of the false rumours making the rounds but decided to respond to that claiming the First Lady sustained shock on hearing about Yusuf’s accident.

''We did note some very misleading reports about this incident making the rounds in some social media outlets. Most of them would not ordinarily need to be responded to.''

The statement by the hospital further reads: ''Yusuf Muhammadu Buhari, son of His Excellency President Buhari, was admitted into Cedarcrest Hospitals Abuja in the late hours of the Dec. 26, 2017, following injuries sustained as a rider of a motorcycle.

''Following initial stabilization, he was taken into intensive care. He underwent successful emergency surgical operations the following morning carried out by our team of neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons.

''Over the following week, his condition improved remarkably and he was transferred from intensive care to the ward.

''He has remained stable ever since and has continued to make remarkable progress. He is now ready to be discharged.
