NHIS Executive Sec. Accused of fraud, governing council demands immediate suspension and termination of appointment.


The Executive Secretary of NHIS, Mallam Usman Yusuf has been alleged for fraud and other misconduct by the scheme’s governing council.

Senior workers at the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) had earlier today demanded that the Nigerian government should probe the Executive Secretary of the scheme, Usman Yusuf, asking him to step aside after again involving himself in another fraudulent act.

The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria at the NHIS restated some of the alleged misconducts over which Mr Yusuf was suspended from office last year and accused him of refusing to turn a new leaf after pardoning.

The executive secretary was suspended by the Minister of Health, Mr Isaac Adewole, in July 2017 over alleged filthy misconduct and fraud.

The council hereafter is clamoring for a termination of his appointment as it appear that he is unfit to handle such vital post.
