The Federal Government says the reinstatement of the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, Usman Yusuf, will not stop his investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said while fielding questions from State House reporters after the cabinet meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Yusuf, who was in June 2017 suspended by the Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, sequel to allegations of gross misconduct, was on Tuesday reinstated by the president.
The minister later reportedly found the NHIS helmsman culpable of infractions that ranged from nepotism to theft of public funds.
Earlier before the cabinet meeting started, there was a scene inside the Council Chambers of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja
