Some workers of the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS, yesterday pledged to support their reinstated Executive Secretary, USMAN YUSUF, to reposition the scheme.
The workers staged a peaceful protest at the headquarters of NHIS in support of YUSUF under the aegis of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, ASCSN, and Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria MHWUN.
UCHENNA EWELIKE, a concerned NHIS staff, confirmed this during the protest to welcome back YUSUF as the substantive executive secretary of NHIS.
USMAN YUSUF was reinstated by the President on February 6, 2018, after being suspended by the Minister of Health, Professor ISSAC ADEWOLE.
However, his reinstatement by the President does not seem to go well with the workers as they embarked on a protest inside the premises of the NHIS.
