Yar’adua Not With Us - Saudi Hospital by Oloks(m): 1:17am On Dec 30, 2009
THE ailing President Umaru Yar’Adua, who left Nigeria 37 days ago for medical attention in Saudi Arabia, was never admitted to King Faisal Hospital at all as believed by Nigerians, the Nigerian Tribune can report authoritatively.
Investigations conducted by the Nigerian Tribune on Tuesday revealed that the president was not in either of the two branches of King Faisal Hospital in Riyadh and Jeddah.
Few days after the president left the country, presidential spokesperson, Mr. Olusegun Adeniyi, addressed a press conference, where he told Nigerians that President Yar’Adua had been taken to Saudi Arabia for confirmatory checks, when speculations became rife as to his whereabouts.
According to Adeniyi, the Chief Physician to the President, Dr. Salisu Banye, had said Yar’Adua had been diagnosed of acute pericardits, an inflammation with the sac-like covering of the heart, on November 26.
“It was then decided that he should undertake confirmatory checks at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he had his last medical checkup in August. The medical review and tests undertaken at the hospital have confirmed the initial diagnosis that the president is, indeed, suffering from Acute Pericarditis,” the statement had said.
But investigations conducted by the Nigerian Tribune revealed that President Yar’Adua was not in either of the two branches of King Faisal Special Hospital in Riyadh and Jeddah.
In fact, a worker in the central unit of the hospital, Hubaid Al-Atabi, disclosed in a telephone conversation conducted in Arabic, that the president was never admitted to the hospital, adding that his record was not in their possession.
He, therefore, advised the Nigerian Tribune to make an enquiry at the Jeddah branch of the hospital, which further revealed that the president was also not admitted therein by a member of staff who refused to disclose his name.
The numbers contacted were +96614427502, +96614647272 (Riyadh), +96626677777 (Jeddah).
Meanwhile, a source said the president is still in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, though out of hospital.
The source said further that the president, for now, could not embark on long haul trip, thus making it difficult for him to be taken to either the United States or Germany.
The possibility is that his wife, Hajia Turai, might have decided to explore the spiritual angle by moving him to a place where the already employed marabouts can pray for him unhindered, a source said.
Another source said the family had objected to taking the president on air ambulance to either the US or Germany and even Nigeria, because of the unusual noise that it could cause.
Given the latest development, nobody, not even the aides of the president, could say authoritatively where President Yar’Adua is. Meanwhile, if the controversial Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Michael Aondoakaa, was presumed to be speaking the mind of ailing PresidentYar’Adua’s kitchen cabinet, then Vice-President Goodluck Jonathan and those pushing for his constitutional ascension as acting president should perish such an idea.
The minister, who had said Yar’Adua could rule from sickbed, told a federal high court sitting in Abuja, on Tuesday, that the operational 1999 Constitution did not make it mandatory for Yar’Adua to communicate the National Assembly, even when he could no longer discharge his constitutional duties.
His position was contained in government’s preliminary objection to a suit by Mr. Femi Falana, seeking an order of the court compelling Yar’Adua to constitutionally hand over the reins of governance to Jonathan in acting capacity while still ailing and another by a former lawmaker, Honourable Farouk Aliyu, seeking to declare the president unfit to continue in office.

A simple media enquiry has just revealed the sham and charade including contempt for the citizens of Nigeria.

In a nutshell, as far as I am concerned the man is dead, hospital told family facts they are in self denial, forced the medics to ontinue life support while the marabouts performs their usual lying act ( maybe Turai want to ask Mrs. Abacha).

Our bretherns in the North aid and abetted by the dubious AGF Idonkia continues to put this country at second best while their stealing interest comes first.

I always like a United Nigeria but It is very clear that the North is only interested in having power to conrol the country forever whilst they are very incompetent having ruled this country for almost 40 years out of 49years of independence. If not for the OIL, the North will not be interested in Nigeria, it will even be worse if OILis found in their domain.

They have proved the south east right to say that everybody should go their own way and call themselves whatever name they chose for their new country presumably, ARewa, Oduduwa, Biafra and may be Republic of Niger Delta.

If Goodluck Johanthan does not becomes the substntive president of theis country under whatever disguise including military, Nigeria is finished and MEND would make sure they govt will not lift a single litre of OIL from Nger Delta.

By the way I am not from the Niger Delta but one should voiced out when one can see a cler act of injustice. The North cabal are arogant and daylight pen Robber, as per FELA KUTI - AUTHORITY STEALING

Whether or not YAR A'LIAR resigns, he is not fit to be the President of Nigeria. He has not spoken to his citizens for 36 days with all the rumours, he is a bloody fool. Only the supreme court can safe us,  he will not resign neither will NASS impeached him. The are all colaborator and conspirators. All the FEC and minsiters are particular about their jobs and not the welfare of NIgerians. Barawo bansa

Re: Yar’adua Not With Us - Saudi Hospital by Nobody: 2:52am On Dec 30, 2009
Atleast we all know the power is far much more important to his family rather than his life.
Obasanjo and his family, including the Northern elite hastened the death of this man.
I just worry why we all worry about him. It wasnt as if Nigeria ever has any meaningful or progress leader or president in the first place. And besides, what good has any of these people ever done to the nation as a whole. They could keep taking him anywhere they want. I never wish bad things to him or Jonathan, but I never wish them well nevertheless.

As the experiment called Nigeria gradually heads to a kaput, the dead, old and young Nigerians who directly or indirectly fought against Biafra would see reason to apologise to Ojukwu,Ndigbo and all former Biafrans for the genocidal acts commited against them.

In words of Ojukwu, "Good morning Nigeria"
Re: Yar’adua Not With Us - Saudi Hospital by AKO1(m): 6:26am On Dec 30, 2009
A whole president has now turned to lost and found matter.

Perhaps the international media should give this saga more attention; it may pressurize Segun, Dora and their other colleagues to tell us the truth.

But right now Mutallab and his comrades-in-arms in Yemen have all the attention.

And who exactly is on the ground who can confirm it for you? ROFLMAO!! !


Even our dear "Dora, the Explorer" is unwilling to tell you what is going on, and you blame the papers for making some stories up for us to enjoy in the meantime?? ROFLMAO!!!

we have been getting situational reports from saudi hospitals so if at this point, they are giving us jack, we will wait till we cannot find yar adua for the second term and saudi arabia will be ready to provide another yar adua for us.
many idiots here will ask me why i keep on mentioning obasanjo, if there is no other idiot in nigeria that can give account of our missing president, obasanjo can do that with ease.
how many years did alams spend in london before obasanjo and ribadu arranged for his replacement by goodluck jonathan. since it is this same goodluck jonathan that is the vp and yar adua has gone awol for like 39days, what is stopping this same group of idiots from acting in the same manner.
i want wisemen like afam and co to comment on the missing president.
the muslims must be reminded of the 24hrs ultimatum for dead bodies to be buried so in case yar has died and refused to be buried, he shld forget heaven.
if anyone been in anyother country outside nigeria and see how things are been done, u will be forced to denounce this nationality called nigerian.
