He will be accompanied by his mother, Aisha Buhari, the daughter of the President, Mrs. Halima Buhari-Sheriff, the personal physician to the first lady, Dr. Kamal Mohammed and three other aides.
Reports said Yusuf had remained largely unresponsive to treatment at Cedarcrest Hospital where he was first taken after the bike accident in Abuja.

A presidency source told Sahara Reporters that since Yusuf was admitted, he has not regained his speech due to traumatic brain injury.
Yusuf who broke his limb and sustained a head injury in the crash indicated to doctors yesterday that he is repeatedly having pain in his hand.
We reported last week that Yusuf was yet to regain his speech as doctors treating him at the Cedarcrest hospital have discovered additional injuries on his body (read here).
We pray for their safe trip and speedy recovery!
