It has emerged that the bugging of an official car allocated to a former CEO of the National Youth Authority (NYA), Ras Mubarak, has cost the state agency “over GHS15,000”.

His successor, Emmanuel Asigri who disclosed this said the security device affected the ignition system of the car, resulting in a total change of the entire starting system of the vehicle before it could work again.

“When they checked through the ignition system, they realised there was a foreign device attached to it, so they took a picture of it, sent it to the Transport Officer enquiring who had installed the device in the vehicle, so it became a surprise to the Transport Officer who also reported to the Director of Procurement and Projects … It really created a major problem … and it has resulted in we having incurred a cost of over GHS15,000 …” he said.

He added that the National Security is investigating the issue.

Meanwhile, the Kumbungu MP has described as “empty noise” the hue and cry surrounding the bugging of his office and official car.

According to him, he ordered the bug in his office to be removed as well as the one in his car to be deactivated before leaving office, and, therefore, does not see the whole “fuss” being created over the issue.

“In all humility, if I wanted ‘dirt’ on a member of the new government, he's the least person of interest to me. The fuss about me bugging or tracking his movements is just empty noise to take away attention from the embarrassing flop of the homecoming summit his government organised; they want to divert attention from the insults the Deputy Minister rained on Ghanaians in the diaspora and the utter disrespect and arrogance already demonstrated by a section of the Akufo-Addo government; the corruption that's engulfed the government, the U-Turn upon U-Turn and broken and failed promises of his government,” he said.
