He said that the device was given to him by one Haruna as a gift in his early days at the Ministry and that he ordered its installation subsequently to enable him to monitor what went on in his office at the time.

According to him, the hue and cry over the incident were not necessary as the device was not even fully installed.

The Tamale Central Member of Parliament has also  apologised to his successors for the audiovisual monitoring device that was found in his former office.

“Let me take the opportunity to apologise to my successor as it was never intended and nobody speed or prowled on the office when I left office," Mr Fuseini said.

He further indicated that his clear conscience made him confess to putting the device in the office after the issue became public.

“If I had kept quiet it would take a lot of time before the security agencies can discover that I put it there.

“The device was in furtherance of protecting my own personal security in view of the implementation of policies that had to deal with raiding small scale mining sector of illegalities.

"That device has no capability and I am prepared to work with the National Security in detecting that and I feel it is my civic responsibility to disclose this," he said.
