President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered that former vice-president, Alex Ekwueme,  be flown abroad for medical treatment.

Senior special assistant to the President on media and publicity, Garba Shehu said the President gave the order after he received a brief on the medical condition of the former vice-president.

Dr. Ekwueme was reported to have gone into coma after he collapsed at his Enugu residence and was rushed to the hospital. According to his family, his situation has improved but still require close medical attention.

The President's involvement in the treatment of Dr. Ekwueme will cover the cost of chartering an air ambulance for the journey and the cost of his treatment.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the immediate medical treatment of former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, outside the country,” Shehu said in a statement.

“The approval followed a brief the president received Friday on the medical condition of the former vice-president.

“The approval covers the immediate charter of an air ambulance for the emergency movement and the cost of treatment.

“President Buhari prays that God will grant the elder statesman speedy recovery.”
