A pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) pressure group in the Volta region, Alliance for Change has charged the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) to arrest and prosecute the former minister for lands and natural resources, Hon Inusah Fuseini for failing to inform his successors of planted audiovisual devices in the office.
Alhaji Fuseini, who was also a Minister for lands and natural resources under the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration, made a shocking confession on Tuesday when he admitted the installation of the secret audiovisual recording gadgets at a hidden place in the office of the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources.
Nii Osah Mills succeeded Mr. Inusah Fuseini after he was transferred to the road ministry. Mr. John Peter Amewu took over as the lands and natural resources minister early part of 2017 under the Akufo-Addo administration.
In an interview with the media, Mr. Inusah disclosed that he planted the gadgets when he was a minister in that office before he was sent to the Roads Ministry.
The Pressure group, Alliance for Change in a press release signed by the convener, Barrister Prince stated that the recent revelation that an audiovisual recording device was planted in the office of the Lands and Natural Resources Minister of which Mr. Inusah Fuseini has confessed of being the one who planted it there during his time as the sector minister, should be considered seriously.
They further stated that “the former minister initially seems to know more about the law and tried to be arrogant over the matter but after several criticisms from his own party executives he later apologized”.
The statement further questioned why “Hon. Fuseini claimed the device is not functioning but how come something that is not working be detected by the security experts after they entered the office of the Lands and Natural Resources minister, Hon. Peter Amewu?”.
“We believe that, there are thousand plus questions to be asked than the few answers provided by the former minister.’’ They stressed.
They concluded by saying that if the law really applies to top politicians then they are once again calling on the BNI to arrest Hon. Inusah Fuseini for more interrogations into the matter.
