The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has extended the suspension of the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Prof Usman Yusuf, indefinitely.
Professor Adewole’s move is in defiance of a resolution by the House of Representatives which asked him to reinstate him since July.
The minister had in July suspended Yusuf for three months and set up a committee to investigate the NHIS boss who was accused of fraud in a series of petitions.
Vice-president yemi osinbajo who was the Acting President at the time had asked the minister to investigate Professor Yusuf.
