Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo, the African industrialist, is moving to commercial automobile production in a great and bold effort to penetrate into an industry dominated by countries like the USA, Japan, Germany, United Kingdom, France and Korea.

From a current production level of two vehicles per year, the Apostle Safo Suaye Technology Research Centre (ASSTRC) intends to penetrate the local automobile market as it increases production to 40 vehicles per month, or 480 vehicles per year for the time being.

At the moment, construction work is underway at the ASSTRC at Gomoa Mpota in the Central Region for the installation of a new automobile assembly plant to begin the commercial production of various brands of Kantanka vehicles in two years’ time (2015).

Alfred Akutteh, a technical Officer at ASSTRC, said they are expecting an assembly plant soon.

After the installation of the assembly plant, ASSTRC will train its workers on how to use the plant so that by 2015 it will be ready to produce Kantanka brand vehicles.

But even before the equipment arrives at the port, Apostle Dr. Safo is appealing for government support, namely import duty exemption, to cushion ASSTRC as it ventures into the commercial production of vehicles.

He said support from the government would enable the ASSTRC to help more youth, including university students and graduates, who had been making use of the practical training at the centre to realise their potential in life. Currently Apostle Dr. Safo, the technological hope of Africa, is giving free training to over 550 students from universities, polytechnics and senior high schools across the country.

Apostle Dr. Safo said he did not seek any reward for his initiatives except to help his fellow Africans, strengthen the economy and prove to the world that the black man is also capable of manufacturing great technological equipment, machines etc.

Since its establishment in 1971, the Kristo Asafo Mission, under the leadership of Apostle Dr. Safo, has undertaken the largest philanthropic campaign in Ghana, making huge donations in cash and kind to educational institutions ( from crèche to Universities), Prisons, Hospitals, orphanages and many needy institutions.

It has also spearheaded many technological innovations with the manufacturing of the Kantanka brand of vehicles, crane, excavators,

block moulding machine, televisions, stabilizers, etc all without any government or external support. Apostle Dr. Safo said that in spite of the challenges he encounters, he will never be discouraged in his endeavours.

The Kantanka brand of vehicles, according to Mr. Akutteh, was designed to suit the local environment and interests.

All the parts of the Kantanka brand of vehicles are produced locally with local materials in line with Apostle Dr. Safo’s philosophy that Ghanaians and indeed Africa must tap their rich natural resources in order to develop.

Apostle Safo has already manufactured a car that has no engine and moves only with the aid of a solar-powered battery, without petrol and water ( Kantanka Odeneho).

ASSTRC said the purpose of such a vehicle would be to help the country save fuel, which could be used to power big trucks, other equipment and machines as well as for other industrial purposes. This would also make the usage of the car cost effective as the user will not need to buy fuel but will depend on the sun, which is free, for energy.

Apart from the automobile industry, Apostle Dr. Safo is also eyeing the aviation and marine industries with the aim of manufacturing more aircrafts and marine vessels.

The manufacturing of another aircraft was on course when journalists including reporters from Daily Graphic news paper visited the ASSTRC, where they saw employees busily working on the wing of the new aircraft.

Long live Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo, Long live Ghana, Long live Africa.
