A reliable source on Sunday informed AljazirahNigeria that the travails of the embattled National Health Insurance Scheme Executive Secretary, Prof. Yusuf Usman, was a product of gang-up against the NHIS top officer.


According to the inside source who spoke to our correspondent on the basis of anonymity said that the reason for the unjustified suspension of the Executive secretary is to frustrate the effort of professor Yusuf in his bid to fight corruption, and recover the monies.

The source also alleged that Prof Yusuf’s problem cannot be intirely distanced from politics as some of the board members of the HMOs are also associates of Presidential hopeful Atiku Abubakar.
