The Peoples Democratic Republic (PDP) and the governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose have joined other Nigerians to pray for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari’s son, Yusuf who was involved in a power bike crash in Abuja.

The accident which occurred on Tuesday left him with an injury on the head and a broken limb.

The PDP, in a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbodiyan, said the party was shocked by the news of the accident adding that it would  continue to pray for the young man.

“PDP as a family receive with shock, the sad news of the involvement of Yusuf Buhari, son of President Muhammadu Buhari in a power bike accident in Abuja.

“The PDP as a family prays for Yusuf’s speedy recovery to enable him return to his normal life. We also commend the prompt intervention by medics even as we value the concern of all well-meaning Nigerians for their prayers for Yusuf and the first family,” said the party.

Ologbodiyan said the party was reassured by reports from the presidency that Yusuf Buhari was in a stable condition.

Similarly, Fayose, in a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi in Ado Ekiti wished the president’s son a quick recovery.

Adelusi quoted his boss to have prayed on his verified Twitter Handle that God will be with the president’s family at this trying time.

“I wish the president’s son speedy recovery. May the healing hands of the Almighty God be upon the young man and may God be with the first family at this trying time. God, who is the giver of life will restore every aspect of Yusuf’s body that needs to be restored,” Fayose was quoted as saying.

Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan also reacted to motorbike accident and called on all Nigerians to set aside their differences towards President Buhari and pray for speedy recovery of his son.

“Today should be a day when all of us Nigerians put our partisanship aside and join with the @MBuhari family to pray for the quick recovery of his son, Yusuf Buhari.

“There are things that divide us. But a thing such as this should unite us in wishing well to the first family,” he tweeted.

A special prayer session was also held for Yusuf inside a mosque located near the president’s office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The session, conducted shortly after the afternoon prayer and attended by some presidential aides and Villa workers, was led by the chief imam of Aso Rock Mosque, Sheik Abdulwahid Suleiman.

Meanwhile, the presidency debunked reports that Yusuf had been flown to Germany for treatment.

Senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu said in a text message sent to journalists today that the young Buhari was still being treated at a private hospital in Abuja.

“He has undergone surgery at a clinic in Abuja. He is in a stable condition. The President and his wife, Mrs., Aisha Muhammadu Buhari are thankful to Nigerians for the good wishes and prayers for their son,” said Shehu.
