Vice President of Ghana,Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has paid a tribute to former Senior minster under the erstwhile Kuffour administration J.H Mensah who passed on in the early hours of Thursday.
Dr Bawumia in a facebook post disclosed that the veteran politician was a mentor and the best economist Ghana has produced. Analytically amazing in the way he dissected issues and practical in his policy prescriptions.
“Truly a mighty tree has fallen with the passing on of a stateman Mr. Joseph Henry Mensah (affectionately called J.H. Mensah)
He passionately served his country with pride to enhance development and was a man of endearing charm and wit.
For me, J.H. Mensah was a mentor. In my humble opinion he is probably the best economist Ghana has produced. Analytically amazing in the way he dissected issues and practical in his policy prescriptions. He was the author of President Kwame Nkrumah’s seven year development plan.
My sincerest condolences go to his family, Government, People of Ghana and the fraternity of the Danquah-Dombo-Busia tradition.
May his soul Rest In Peace” he wrote.
