According to Premium Times, the Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, approved the suspension on Thursday with immediate effect.


Mr. Yusuf, 54, took over the state-run health insurance provider on July 29, 2016.

But his reign has been fraught with allegations of fraud.

The suspension came weeks after the Senate launched investigations into his activities as the NHIS chief.

The lawmakers accused Mr. Yusuf of “corrupt expenditure of N292 million” which he allegedly spent on health care training “without recourse to any appropriate approving authority.”

Although, the NHIS chief has denied any wrongdoing but multiple sources have confirmed that Mr Yusuf received his suspension letter on Thursday evening.
