The executive secretary national health insurance scheme who was Thursday suspended indefinitely by the board and governing council of NHIS has again been reinstated
Prof. Usman Yusuf who was reinstated on the 6th of February 2018 by the presidency six months after his suspension by the minister of health Prof Isaac Adewole recently came under hard knocks from staff of the scheme as they petitioned him to the board and governing council of the scheme. In the petition they alleged that the ES Prof Yusuf inflated ICT contracts for 2018 by 242 percent, posting of staff at random, allocating over 600 million Naira monthly for running of his office and recruiting staff without following due process amongst others.
The council’s chairman Dr Ifene Eneyantu in press release made available to journalists says the council has set up committee to investigate the allegations and report within three months, while stressing the council has suspended the ES Prof Yusuf Usman indefinitely.
Shocking, the council’s decision was overturned by the presidency as it reinstated him again,
In her reaction to the reinstatement of the ES for the second time the chairman of the board Ifene Eneyantu while expressing sadness in her release to the press says those who hide under cover of the Presidency to protect corruption know that Nigerians are keenly watching. Adding that she is convinced that if President Muhammadu Buhari is fully briefed about a tenth of Yusuf atrocities, HE would throw him out!
