According to a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari’s mission to the hospital was to visit the Acting Commander of the 3 Division of the Nigerian Army, Jos, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Sani Aliyu.
Aliyu is said to be receiving treatment in the hospital for the injuries he sustained in an auto crash on Maiduguri-Damaturu Road about six months ago.
The two military officers were said to be on a duty tour in the North-East when the accident occurred.
It was learnt that the President was accompanied to the hospital by the Governors of Borno and Imo States, the National Security Adviser, the Minister of Interior and the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
“The President and his delegation wished him a quick recovery and an early return to his family and duties in Nigeria. He gave a further assurance that his administration will continue to accord priority to the health and well-being of service personnel,” the statement read.
Shehu also quoted doctors managing Aliyu as saying that the military officer could barely move his head only when he was admitted.
The rest of his body was said to be torn and broken in many parts.
The presidential aide said the President was told that the patient can now move around with little assistance.
He was said to have thanked the President for his visit, saying his spirit to serve Nigeria remains unbroken.
