The Member of Parliament for Wa Central, Dr Rashid Pelpuo has described the late JH Mensah as a friend and a mentor.

Contributing to a statement in memory of the late astute politician, Dr Pelpuo said the late JH Mensah distinguished himself everywhere he went during his days on earth.

He noted that the exploits of JH Mensah attracted Dr Kwame Nkrumah who invited him to be part of his seven year Development Plan for the country and subsequently became Finance Minister at a very prime age.

According to Dr Rashid Pelpuo who was a former Minister of State in-charge of Public Private Partnership (PPP), the late JH Mensah exhibited great quality of debate and versatile in all subject matter as a great debater who reads wide, cuts across all political decide and is respected by all.

He noted that the deceased rose above his training during the pre-colonial days and made himself relevant during the colonial era in the post-colonial periods.

Dr Pelpuo advocates for the documentation of the life of late JH Mensah to serve as an inspiration even as his name is immortalized as a man of deference.
