The Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, has taken a swipe at former Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Inusah Fuseini, for failing to inform his successor, Nii Osah Mills, about the hidden audio visual device when the latter took over from him.
On Monday, an audio visual device was discovered at the office of the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Peter Amewu.
Mr. Insuah Fuseini subsequently claimed ownership of the device, explaining that he installed it in 2013 for his personal protection because he took up the fight against illegal mining also known as Galamsey in the country.
But the Majority Leader believes Mr. Fuseini failed to do due diligence for not informing his successor about the said device.
He also indicated that the Minister of National Security has since the development, been “taking some measures” to ensure that it gets to the bottom of the matter. He also criticized the Minority for focusing on issues that in his view are of less significance.
His comments come hours after the immediate past Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Nii Osah Mills expressed shock and disappointment over the discovery of the secret audio visual recording device in the office he previously occupied. According to him, the revelation by his colleague, Inusah Fuseini, who said he fixed the device in the office for his personal use, is unfair because he has apparently been under secret surveillance while in office.
Speaking on Accra-based Citi Fm, Nii Osah Mills, who served in that Ministry after Inusah Fuseini, said he feels “naked” after the revelation. Meanwhile, the Tamale central lawmaker has since rendered an unqualified apology to his successors.
He has also promised to submit himself to National Security probe over the planted secret audiovisual device in his former office.
