Osinlu told NAN: “NHIS Executive Secretary, Prof. Usman Yusuf, is yet to resume office after his reinstatement by the Federal Government on Tuesday, February 6.
“The Acting Executive Secretary, Malam Attahiru Ibrahim, and the Minister of Health, Prof. Issac Adewole, were invited to the Presidential Villa and we are waiting the outcome of the meeting,” he said.
