President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday sacked all five heads of agencies under the Federal Ministry of Health, a report this morning in Daily Sun said.

The report quoted an unnamed reliable source at the ministry as disclosing that the Executive Director of the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA), Dr. Mohammed Ado, the Acting-Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Femi Akingbade and the Director-General of the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD), Professor Karniyus Gamanie, the Acting Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, Yetunde Oni and the Director-General of the National Institute of Medical Research (NIMR), Professor Innocent Ujah were removed yesterday.

The paper said that calls and text messages sent to the line of the Director Press at the ministry, Mrs. Boade Akinola, to ascertain the official reasons for the sack of the five parastatal heads were unanswered as at the time of filling the report.

An unnamed senior staff member of the ministry was, however, quoted as saying that the removal of the heads of the health agencies was a “routine system clean-up.”
