Ademola Adeleke, Osun governor, has ordered the immediate reinstatement of Niyi Oginni, the executive secretary of the state’s Health Insurance Scheme (OHIS).

In a statement on Tuesday by Olawale Rasheed, Adeleke’s spokesperson, the governor said Ogini’s reinstatement takes immediate effect. 

Adeleke said the suspension of the OHIS executive secretary was reversed following the review of the contract and MOU committee report and the “disturbing reports of an imminent collapse of the state health insurance scheme.”

“The decision was also linked to the need to comply with public service regulations which stipulated procedures and conditions for discipline and management of public servants,” Rasheed said.


“Adeleke further directed the recalled executive secretary to normalise the operations of the insurance scheme by ensuring continuous patronage of the scheme by hospitals across Osun state.”

In December 2022, TheCable reported how Adeleke suspended Oginni and Adebukola Olujide, head of the primary healthcare development board in the state, over alleged mismanagement of public resources.

According to NAN, the suspension of the two top officials was based on an interim report of the committee on contracts and MOU, chaired by Niyi Owolade.


The report had indicted the two OHIS top staffers of gross abuse of office, mismanagement of public resources and serial violations of the public service regulations and laws.

The report also unearthed alleged unethical practices of the officials, manifesting in contract awards without due process, non-remittance of actual tender fees collected from contractors, contracts without value for money and deliberate splitting of contracts.
