Former Ghana’s High Commissioner to India, H. E. Sam P. Yalley, has urged the ruling government to present Neoplan Ghana Limited to the Founder and manufacturer of Kantanka Automobile Company, Dr Kwadwo Safo Kantanka.
” . . Left to me alone, let’s give Neoplan Ghana Limited together with its facilities to Dr Kwadwo Safo Kantanka because he is a Ghanaian who has shown the potentials that with support from the state he will make Ghana proud by solving our transportation problems in terms of manufacturing automobile products,” he said.
In an interview on UTV’s ‘Adekye Nsroma’ political discussion segment, the NDC communicator grieved he will be very much surprised to see foreign automobile companies fully establish themselves in Ghana as the state owned one is left to diminish, when Ghana was the first African country to produce a car.
“It will be a shame for this country to encourage foreign auto-mobile companies to come and setup their companies here in Ghana while we sit aloof to collapse that same company belonging to the country, which will as well be a source of employment and foreign exchange to the country,” he added.
Suggesting his view on what should be done to revamp Neoplan Ghana Limited, Sam P. Yalley said; “My recommendation is that the government of the day should re-package Neoplan for Apostle Kwadwo Safo Kantanka to manage as standards and insurance policies are outlined for him to comply than sit unconcerned for it to phase off”.
