Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says Government would buy more vehicles manufactured by Kantanka Automobile Company Limited to boost the Company’s operations and stimulate other local automobile assembling companies to increase production.
He said Government had already bought two of the vehicles by the Kantanka Company and added to his fleet of vehicles.
He encouraged corporate organizations to also patronise locally manufactured vehicles as the government alone cannot lead the way and bring new dimension to Ghana’s industrial transformation agenda.
Dr. Bawumia was speaking at the 39th edition of the Annual Technology and Agricultural Exhibition of the Kristo Asafo Mission of Ghana, in Accra on the 29th day of December 2019 under the theme “Enhancing Sustainable Technology, Organic Agriculture and Culture, the pathway to development.”
The exhibition showcased a 40-foot road cruiser vehicle designed in an aeroplane-like manner, with limousine quality interior decor, whilst the other vehicle was an armoured personnel carrier that could be used by the Police for patrol duties.
The Vice President lauded the “remarkable achievements” of Emeritus Prof. Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo, the Founder and Leader of the Kristo Asafo Mission and doubles as the Chairman of the Kantanka Automobile Company Ltd, for his innovations, particularly in the areas of agriculture, technological and traditional development.
