President John Dramani Mahama has promised to do whatever it takes to ensure that the body of the late former president of the Ghana Actors Guild, Nii Odoi Mensah, is flown home for burial.

This was revealed by Minister of Tourism, Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare when she visited the family of the late actor in the company of some members of the Ghana Actors Guild at late actors' Grada Estate residence in Accra, Monday.

According to the minister, the President described Nii Odoi Mensah as a 'friend' and will do his best to help the family in their time of need.

The delegation was welcomed by the Head of the Family, Robert Nii Kwa, who is also the elder brother of the late actor.

There were rumours that the family needed $68,000 to bring the mortal remains of the late actor back home from China, which the family dismissed as untrue.

Head of the Family, Robert Nii Kwa, who is also the elder brother of the late actor, told Adom FM that they are yet to be furnished with any information concerning the amount of money needed to bring the body back Ghana.

Nii Odoi Mensah, who was the former President of the Ghana Actors Guild, passed away Tuesday, April 12 in China where he had gone for a kidney transplant.
