The real reason President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the reinstatement of the Executive Secretary, National Health Insurance Scheme, Prof. Usman Yusuf, has been revealed.

Punch quoted a top government source as saying that Yusuf was reinstated because the Presidency believed that the allegations which formed the basis of his suspension by the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, remained largely unsubstantiated.

The newspaper reports that the government’s position was that the committee constituted by the minister to investigate Yusuf was neither independent nor free from bias.

Punch source claimed that 20 of the 23 allegations levelled against the NHIS boss were not backed with evidence, while others appeared concocted because of evident alterations and mix-ups in dates.

The newspaper recalled that Buhari decided to appoint Yusuf at a time the Health Management Organisations were short-changing the system, leading to a situation where subscribers to the scheme were not getting the best out of it due to sharp practices on the part of the HMOs and health providers.
