“The death of a friend of long standing brings up so many emotions: grief, sense of loss, sadness, reflections on friendship, reminiscences on a generation, the stark reality of mortality, the prospects of eternity, and the presence of the living God. These feelings are fully present in me when I contemplate the sad passing of Enoch Teye Mensah,” he mourned.

President Akufo-Addo went on to describe the late Council of State member as a warm, generous, gregarious man with a keen intellect and wonderful sense of humour.

“In his element, you could find no better company, and was a good source of advice for me as President of the Republic. I have lost a good friend,” he eulogised.

ET Mensah died on Sunday in South Africa, where he was receiving medical care.

The deceased, who served in several political portfolios, was 77.
