NHIS Controversy: Another Set Of Workers Protest In Support Of Yusuf

The drama continues over the reinstatement of NHIS boss, Prof. Usman Yusuf.

Last week, some workers protested his return to work  at the NHIS head office in Abuja and temporarily closed down the office.
.
Yesterday, some other workers of the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS,  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 Mr. Yusuf under the aegis of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, ASCSN, and Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria MHWUN.

.
Mr. Ewelike called on all security agencies to act within the law and deal with anybody or group of persons with intention of breaking the law disrupting the peace within the work environment. “As public servants, we are guided by ethics of the profession and should not allow ourselves to be used by corrupt stakeholders who are not comfortable with reforms going on in the scheme. The national unions of MHWUN and ASCSN should call the different factions of their local chapters in NHIS to order. They should be advised to re-channel their energy in helping the enrolees who are either poorly treated or denied access on regular basis,’’ Ewelike said.
.
Meanwhile, Abdulrazak Omomaji, Chairman of ASCSN, is still demanding for a reversal of the reinstatement because Mr. Yusuf was under investigation by the EFCC and should not be allowed to hold any public office.
.
NAN reports that there is normalcy in the premises of the agency while security agents were seen keeping vigil.
