    Presidency Establishes Independent Fact-finding Panel to Investigate Alleged Infractions in NHIS

    President Muhammed Buhari has approved the establishment of an independent fact-finding panel to investigate the alleged infractions by the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), and report back within two weeks.

    The presidency revealed this in a series of tweets yesterday.

    The presidency wrote: "In order to create room for an unfettered investigation, the President has approved that the Executive Secretary of the NHIS, Prof. Usman Yusuf should proceed on administrative leave immediately.

    "In his absence, Mr. Ben Omogo, a Director of Administration in the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, has been deployed to oversee the affairs of the Scheme.

    "The presidency recognizes the importance of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) as a strong mechanism for the delivery of public healthcare, and wishes to re-assure all Nigerians of its determination to place high premium on public interest."
