BREAKING: Suspended NHIS Boss Sues Health Minister, AGF, Agency
The Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Prof. Usman Yusuf, has sued the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), and the NHIS to court over his suspension by the governing council of the board.
In the suit, with number FHC/ABJ/CS/1220/2018, filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja, Yusuf asked the court to rule, among other things, that the governing council of the NHIS had no powers under the provisions of the NHIS Act to suspend him from office.
It could be recalled that Yusuf was suspended a fortnight ago on charges bothering on corruption and maladministration.
He later appeared at the agency with police officials numbering about fifty and forced his way into the premises.
