For former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), politics is taking the backseat for now, as they rally in prayers for Yusuf, son of President Muhammadu Buhari, who was involved in a bike accident on Tuesday.

While the former President, who is in Liberia to monitor the presidential re-run election in the country, took to his Twitter account to express his sadness at the incident he described as “bad news” and extend his solidarity with the nation’s first family, the PDP, in a statement by Kola Olagbodiyan, its spokesman, also expressed similar sentiments.

Jonathan wrote: “I have been in Liberia monitoring elections and only just heard the sad news. My family and I are in prayers for the quick recovery of Yusuf Buhari.

“It is my deep desire that a young man so full of promise should live and thrive to fulfil the promises God has domiciled in him.”

While wishing the President’s son a quick recovery to enable him return to his normal life, the PDP in the statement on Thursday, said the party was shocked by the news of the accident.

Stating that it was reassured by a presidential statement, on Wednesday, which said that the younger Buhari was in a steady condition, the statement added: “PDP as a family received with shock, the sad news of the involvement of Yusuf Buhari, son of President Muhammadu Buhari in a power-bike accident in Abuja on Wednesday.

“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”.
