The Commissioner urged the team to brainstorm and review with the consultants to develope a working paper for the scheme state’s endorsement.

On the journey so far, the Team Lead/Executive Secretary of GOHealth, Dr. Abubakar Musa, appreciated Governor Yahaya for signing the bill enabling the Agency in December 2019.

He recalled that the governor also constituted a five-man technical working group to midwife the process to which DGI were instrumental to the design of the State Contributory Scheme.

“This design has catapulted the state’s Agency ahead of so many other states that started long before her.

“So far, over 25,000 vulnerable have begun enjoying the scheme and enrolment to the formal sector program.

“Over 20,000 principal beneficiaries will be enrolled in the following month while that of their dependants will be done consequently,” he stated.

Dr. Musa stated that the essence of the five-day workshop was to review the operational guidelines to be validated and approved by the board.
