Uche Agbai, Nigerian Musician Diagnosed With Stage 3 Cancer Writes Open Letter To Yusuf Buhari

nigerian musician diagnosed cancer

Sensei Uche, an On Air Personality who is currently receiving treatment for Stage 3 cancer in Istanbul Turkey has penned an open letter to Yusuf Buhari who returned to Nigeria recently after medical treatment abroad.

In an open letter Uche penned to Yusuf Buhari on the social media few hours ago, he  said the lucky kid is enjoying what an average Nigerian didn’t have access to.

The letter titled “A Letter To Yusuf Buhari” reads:

Hello Yusuf,
I write this letter as a brother and Nigerian, hoping that your recent experience has given you more insight, empathy and strength to look beyond yourself and live for the greater good of humanity.

Welcome back home brother. Thank God for granting you good health and more years on earth.
As I think about what led to your accident, I realise that the desire to live to the fullest, is something we both share. Power bike riding is an exciting pass time. And racing on a power bike, (laughs) you’re either an adrenaline junky or just downright crazy to do such. I too look forward to a day I ride my bike across cities and towns in Nigeria.

I’m currently in Istanbul receiving radiotherapy treatment for a malignant tumour discovered in my nasal region last year. And it’s going well thank God.
Now here’s why I’m writing you this letter. Note, what I’m about to point out is not your doing, just the way life designed our paths. So take no offence or feel guilt from it. Just know that there comes a time life teaches us lessons that will benefit the world we live in. * You had the best medical care available to you in Nigeria when you had your accident. A team of some the best medical practitioners and minds in the country at your bedside. * I am lucky to have had a tumour identified after months of test in clinics and hospitals. Of which I was told I had nothing more than an infection. * You were flown out of the country as soon as you were stabilised because the doctors I assume didn’t have the equipment and technology to continue with treatment.

And note that the logistics of visa, funds and family support were all taken care off the table because of your status as the ‘First Son’ of Nigeria. I assume again that you had aides travel with you. All to make certain that your stay outside the country is comfortable and stress After my tumour was diagnosed malignant thank God, I spent four months of more test and scans to come up with the best form of treatment. Receiving two sessions of chemotherapy which turned out to be ineffective. And later resorted to crowdfunding from Nigerians, which helped me get out of the country for better care. But like everyone going out of the country I had to go through the process of visa application in my critical state.

I could only afford to have a friend travel with me. He put his life on pause for a month to help me settle into the system.
We are lucky Yusuf. There are hundreds of thousands if not millions of Nigerians who are not as fortunate as us. They have died from ailments far less life-threatening. All because they can’t afford the care and the lack of available medical facilities for treatment.
They deserve the best medical care as Nigerians. Because they live in a land blessed with wealth and resources beyond imagination. Something I’m sure you’re benefiting from.

I believe we should all benefit from the resources our country is blessed with. And tribe, language, religion and social standing mean nothing to me when it comes to this notion. I strongly hope you share my sentiments as the first son of Nigeria. I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody.
The words of your father, my president. Words that meant so much to me as I watched your father being sworn in as the fourth democratically elected president of Nigeria.

The people of Nigeria are in need of a leader that will create the opportunities needed to make their lives better.
You know this Yusuf. If you don’t, put on a disguise and go on a nationwide tour to see for yourself. And maybe, just maybe we can start to make the pledge a reality.

I look forward to meeting you, so we can sit down and plot a path to greatness for Nigeria by sharing ideas.
God bless you, and may God bless Nigeria.”

  1. The letter shouldn’t be open letter only to Yusuf, but to all the politicians Children outside the shore of Nigeria either for medical reason,studying or shopping, since their parents seems to be having analogue brain,let them (Their Children) try to see things from different perspective only if THEY are not yet initiated to their parents wicked cult.

  2. The politicians don’t care. If you like shout from now to eternity, Nigerian politicians don’t give a damn if the common man/woman in the country is suffering. All they know is their pocket. During elections you see them giving out one thousand Naira and a piece of cloth to each individual especially the women to win their votes. You see them pay (no matter the amount) some stupid, irresponsible, God forsaking sons of bitches to assassinate their political opponents all in the quest to get in there to loot the nation’s treasury.
    They don’t care if the hospitals are of standard or equipped because they know they can always fly out if they or any member of their family is sick. They have systematically destroyed education because a section of the country feel that others don’t want to wait until they catch up. The common Nigerians don’t want to do anything because of tribal affiliations. Only God will save that country.

  3. the politicians and all the rulers and leaders are all selfish they can afford to send their family abroad for treatment knowing millions of people are dying in Nigeria because of lack of medical facilities anyway I don’t feel sorry for any one of them who die abroad I wish them bad luck whenever they go abroad for treatment life of a common man is same as life of the corrupt politicians

  4. I’m really touched with the letter and pray that God should grant u a quick recovery so that you come back home and join force with us in advocating for good governance.
