Usman Yusuf

Usman Yusuf, the embattled Executive Secretary, National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), has dragged two ministers and NHIS to a Federal High Court in Abuja, challenging his suspension from office.

In the suit, Mr Yusuf instituted legal action against the Ministers of Health and Justice as well as the NHIS.

The six-page summons was filed by Uchechukwu Obi of Alliance Law Firm, Abuja, on behalf of the plaintiff.

According to the document made available to Magic FM on Thursday in Abuja, the respondents are expected to cause appearance within 21 days after the service of the summons on them, inclusive of the day of service.

Mr Yusuf therefore prayed the court to determine all the aforementioned questions in his favour.
