Some unionists have asked the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Usman Yusuf, to vacate office to allow a full-scale investigation be conducted into allegations levied against him.
Abubakar Shanabo, a representative of the NLC and the Chairman, Medical and Health Workers Union (MHWUN) FCT Council, stated this during the ongoing protest by the NHIS workers in Abuja on Thursday.
According to him, the protest over the resumption of the Executive Secretary must continue until victory was ascertained.
“This is the third day of this protest and we will not relent, I have been mandated by the national body that we are in full support of the struggle.
“We insist that Yusuf remains suspended and must vacate his office for the administrative panel to carry on with their investigation.
“We call on the Federal Government to do the needful as it stands for integrity with zero tolerance for corruption, if nothing is done TUC and NLC national bodies will carry on with the protest on Oct 29.
