The protesters sang protest songs shortly after Yusuf resumed office demanding for his sack at the headquarters of the agency in Abuja.
The Reinstatement Of Yusuf Is A Saga, NHIS Unionists Protest
According to them, “the reinstatement saga as is Yusufgate and a mockery of President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war.”
The Chairman of the NHIS arm of the union, Mr. Razaq Omomeji who addressed journalists said that the protest will continue until “Buhari reversed Yusuf’s reinstatement.”
According to him, “Yusuf had bastardised the scheme and his return would only worsen affairs at the agency.”
