Ebun Francis || The federal government on Wednesday said the reinstatement of Usman Yusuf, the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, will not stop any investigation of corruption allegations levelled against
Lai Mohammed, Nigeria’s minister of information and culture stated this while briefing newsmen at the end of the federal executive council meeting.
“I am not aware that the EFCC is investigating the recently reinstated Executive Secretary of NHIS. But if that is the case, I don’t think his reinstatement is a bar to any investigation.”
President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday reinstated Mr. Yusuf six months after he was suspended by the Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, following allegations of gross misconduct.
A panel commissioned by the minister after Mr. Yusuf’s suspension later found him culpable of infractions that ranged from nepotism to theft of public funds.
