- It has emerged that Ras Mubarak had also installed a bugging device in his former NYA office and state vehicle
- He has however denied any ulterior motives, stating it was merely for security reasons
Ras Mubarak, the Member of Parliament for Kumbungu allegedly also planted a bugging device in his office and state vehicle, when he was the director of the National Youth Authority.
The revelation was made by the current acting director of the Authority, Emmanuel Asigri, when the device was discovered during servicing.
Speaking on Joy FM’s Newsfile on Saturday, Mr. Asigri questioned the reasons why the MP did not disclose such important information after he left his post.
"It is not only Inusah Fuseini who did this type of thing. I have suffered the same personally. My official SUV had a tracking in it and nobody in the authority knew until it created a problem for the vehicle.
The vehicle wouldn't start. We tried all the things we needed to do, but the vehicle wouldn't start. We brought experts from Toyota Ghana, they tried everything” Mr Asigri stated.
According to him, it was until the experts took a critical look at the vehicle that the tracking device was found.
This information follows the recent report that the former Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Inusah Fuseini left a ‘spying’ device in his office prior to his exit from his position.
The device which was discovered last week, has caused a stir among the general public, as many claim the former minister’s failure to disclose the existence of such a device points to ulterior motives.
Many have called his transgression as an egregious error, with others demanding for legal sanctions to be placed on Mr. Fuseini.
Meanwhile, Ras Mubarak has taken to his Facebook page, to debunk reports that he left he bugging device in his former office secretly, without the knowledge of NYA officials.
According to him, all installations of the devices were seen by the NYA staff and were done purely for security reasons as he could not determine what went on in his office after work hours.
“In all humility if I wanted "dirt" on a member of the new government, he's the least person of interest to me,” Mr. Mubarak added.
