Press Release: Buhari Ends Germany’s Visit With A Homage To Hospitalised Nigerian Soldier



President Muhammadu Buhari’s intensely busy three-day Official
Visit to Germany ended on a compassionate note on Saturday with his
convoy veering off its way back to the airport in Berlin, to visit a
Nigerian military officer receiving treatment in a Berlin hospital.

The military officer, Brigadier-General Mohammed Sani Aliyu, the Acting Commander of the 3 Division of the Nigerian Army, Jos miraculously survived a ghastly road accident in the course of a duty tour in the North-East.

The head of Training and Operations of the Nigerian Army, Major-General
Yusha’u Abubakar, who was in the same vehicle was not so lucky as he
died in the auto crash on Maiduguri-Damaturu road.

Buhari, accompanied by the Governors of Borno and Imo, the National
Security Adviser, NSA, the Minister of Interior and that of Foreign
Affairs congratulated General Aliyu for the progress he has made in his
treatment in the last six months in hospital. 

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
wellbeing of service personnel.

Doctors said General Aliyu could
barely move his head only when he was stretchered in, with the rest of
the body torn and broken in many parts. Now, he can move around with
very little assistance.

He thanked the President for his visit, saying his spirit to serve Nigeria remains unbroken.
