The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Saturday, wished Vice President Yemi Osinbajo speedy and full recovery, after the VP underwent a surgical procedure to treat recurrent pain caused by a leg fracture.

Buhari’s get-well-soon message is contained in a statement signed late Saturday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, titled ‘President Buhari wishes VP Osinbajo speedy recovery, after surgical procedure.’

Adesina said, “The President gives glory to God for a successful surgery, and prays for ‘speedy and full recovery,’ commending the medical team at the Duchess International Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos, for ‘their competence, and a job well done.’

“President Buhari assures VP Osinbajo of the prayers of Nigerians, and that of his family.”

Earlier, the management of the Duchess International Hospital, announced the successful completion of the procedure saying, “He is expected to be discharged within the next few days.”

According to a statement signed by its Medical Director, Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi, the procedure was performed by a team of six specialist doctors.

They include Dr. Wallace Ogufere (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr. Om Lahoti (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr. Babajide Lawson (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr. Ken Adegoke (Consultant in Anaesthesia & Critical Care); Dr. Oladimeji Agbabiaka (Consultant Anaesthetist); and Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi (Consultant Physician & Medical Director).
