The Integrity Youth Alliance has called on Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to be part of the observers on the Investigative Committee set up by the Ministry of Health rather than jeopardising the committee’s objective via paid protests.

This follows the suspension of the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) by the Ministry.

In a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja signed by its National Coordinator, Kelvin Adegbenga, and Publicity Director, Danjuma Lamido, the youth group declared that it is not part of the protest as its investigation has revealed that the protest was being sponsored by “some people who are afraid of facing the Investigative Committee set up by the supervising body of the NHIS, Ministry of Health.”

It charged those who are to face the committee to do so if they have no skeleton in their cupboard. The group also explained that the objective of the Committee is for them to clear their names on allegations against them, describing the exercise as the best way to go rather than sponsor Civil Society Organisations who are not direct beneficiaries of the services of the NHIS.
