“In 1983 when I was a lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, a committee was set to research and produce a fueless non-engine vehicle but we toiled in vain”, so remarks the Honourable Minister of state for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, Hon. Dr. Joe Oteng Agyei.

In his address as the special guest of honour at the 33rd annual technology exhibition of the Kristo Asafo Mission of Ghana, he said, the Kristo Asafo Mission does not take only the spiritual aspect of the society but also the socio-economic well-being of the society. Among the many exhibits displayed at the function was the Kantanka Odeneho II, a non-engine fueless 4×4 sport utility vehicle(SUV) powered by a series of accumulators with in-built electronic circuits.

According to him, the programme served as a great forum for honouring and celebrating science and technology which is the only tool for the development of the nation. He agreed to the quote of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah – “socialism without science is void” – and to his amazement at the sight of the car, he promised to embark on a special visit to Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo, not in the capacity as a minister of state but in the capacity as an electrical engineer.

The honourable minister assured Ghanaians of government’s commitment to improve science and technology and disclosed

the establishment of a fund by government to support innovators, scientist and key players of the scientific ecosystem. TiGH is making follow-ups on the veracity of this statement and the nitty-gritty of it will be made available to its readers.

To him seeing the car was a dream come true because, the fueless non-engine car which was a mirage to scholars on the committee has now become a reality.
