President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday reinstated the suspended Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Usman Yusuf.

Channels reports that Mr Yusuf was suspended by the Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, in June 2017, for alleged gross misconduct.

Adewole approved the NHIS boss suspension alongside eight other top officials of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

The suspension, according to a statement by the ministry on July 17, 2017 is in furtherance to the activities of the investigative panel of inquiry as well as the desire to have an uninterrupted and robust investigation of all petitions against some officials of the NHIS.

The petitions against the NHIS Boss and the suspended officials include security reports on maladministration and mismanagement.

The House of Representatives had on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 summoned the Minister of Health over the suspension of the executive secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

The lawmakers alleged that the suspension was an attempt to intimidate and punish Professor Usman Yusuf for testifying on issues of corruption in the sector.
