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.
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 Yusuf.
The committee set up by Adewole comprised senior officials of the ministry, the Department of State Services and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission.
