Former Works and Housing Minister Inusah Fuseini has expressed disappointment in his son, Abdul Inusah, after he was convicted of fraud and money laundering in the United States.
According to the former Ghanaian legislator, he sent his son abroad to study as an environmental engineer so he would return to Ghana to help with the challenge of climate change.
Instead, he said his son associated himself with fraudsters and got himself into trouble.
Following the conviction of the young Abdul Inusah, he revealed in a radio interview that he was innocent.
According to him, his documents were used by the fraudsters to carry out their activities but he has personally never been involved in any fraud.
Whilst Inusah Fuseini maintains that he believes his son is innocent of the charges, he expressed disappointment that he would associate with people who are into fraud.
“…I sent him to the US to go and school. I don’t believe he has committed the crimes he has been charged with, but for him to even associate with people who do that (fraud) is my worry. I know my son very well, and I know he won’t do that.” Inusah said during an interview on Okay Fm in Accra.

A jury in Huntington, West Virginia, found the Ghanaian guilty of receipt of stolen money, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and two counts of wire fraud.
He is due to be sentenced in November and faces up to 50 years in jail.
Following reports of his conviction, allegations surfaced that he was the son of a former Minister.
It was later confirmed that Inusah is the son of former Ghanaian legislator, Inusah Abdulai Bistav Fuseini.
