Health Minister Isaac Adewole shuns Reps over suspension of NHIS boss

Published

on

Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, has “respectfully” turned down the invitation to appear before the House of Representatives. He was summoned over the suspension of the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Usman Yusuf.

The
House Committee on Healthcare Services had ordered Adewole to reinstate
Yusuf but the Minister refused – instead, he suspended three more top
officials of the agency.
The Committee thereafter mandated him to appear before it to justify Yusuf’s suspension.
In a letter addressed to the Chairman of the Committee, John Okafor, the Minister said he was constrained not to honour the invitation based on two factors – his scheduled visit to Osun State, and his decision not to affect the outcome of the panel investigating Yusuf.

Adewole assured that he would make the outcome of the investigation known to the legislators.
He wrote,
“Mr Chairman, may I inform you that the federal ministry of health with
the approval of the acting president and head of service is currently
conducting an administrative panel of enquiry on NHIS including the
suspended executive secretary – Professor Usman Yusuf.
“I
am expecting that in a couple of days, the committee should submit her
report to my office. Secondly, I have committed myself to a national
programme as part of the stakeholder’s meeting including the executive
governor of Osun. The programme is being supported by the Engender
Health and beneficiaries are expected from all over the country.
“In
the light of the above, I wish to respectfully crave your indulgence to
be excused from the meeting of 27th July 2017 to avoid making any
statement that will affect the outcome of the committee and also attend
the programme that I already planned. I promise to share and discuss the
outcome of the administrative panel with you when I receive the final
report.”
The NHIS boss, Yusuf, was suspended after series of corruption allegations against him.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
