Aisha, mother of ailing Yusuf and wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has been placed in bed rest at Cedacrest Hospital in the nation’s capital, Abuja.
The private health facility is where Yusuf was rushed to Tuesday night after his involvement in a bike accident.
A source told our correspondent that top government officials – elected and appointed – visited the hospital today.
“Ministers, Governors, EFCC chairman among many others were at Cedacrest today”, he said.
“Yusuf is not in good shape. His condition has taken serious toll on his mother, Aisha.
“I can confirm to you that she was still on bed rest as at this evening”, he said.
Meanwhile, staff of the presidential villa earlier on Thursday in Abuja offered special prayers for the quick recovery of the president’s son.
