The Assembly alleged that the BHIS, inaugurated in July 2013 as a social security programme designed by the state government has been recording lackluster performance and issuing fake drugs to beneficiaries.

At the plenary in Yenagoa, the lawmakers resolved to set up an ad hoc committee to investigate the activities of the BHIS.

In a motion of urgent Public Importance, the lawmaker representing Brass Constituency 1, Daniel Charles, informed the House that the BHIS was designed by the state government to provide healthcare services for the people of the state.

Charles lamented that the service providers were underperforming despite efforts by the government to ensure the efficiency of the scheme.
