Alhaji Onimajesin in an Interview i spoke against the background of complaints by some enrollees that they were denied access to services in some facilities within kwara state.
He said no facility is permitted to turn down or deny enrollees their right to services under the Scheme, as the Scheme had paid every facilities three months capitation for fear of COVID 19 pandemic crisis.
Alhaji Onimajesin however warned that any facility reported or caught denying enrollees their right to access services covered by the Scheme would be sanctioned accordingly.
