Apostle Sarfo Opens Vehicle Assembly Plant
Kojo Kudzordzi explaining a point at the assembly plant
Apostle Kwadwo Sarfo, founder and leader of the Kristo Asafo Mission, says he will begin the commercial production of some vehicles he recently invented at his Gomoa Mpota Vehicle assembling plant in the Central Region.
Apostle Sarfo indicated that the new assembly plant would produce 10 sports utility and pick-ups per day when it begins full operation later this year.
Kantaka vehicles, which were produced earlier, were not commercially viable because unconventional manpower techniques were used to put the parts together.
Kojo Kudzordzi, Operations Manager, highlighting the support of some international partners in the construction of the site, gave the assurance that quality control measures had been put in place to enhance the efficiency and durability of the vehicles to be produced.
He said they would manufacture saloon cars and buses by the end of 2015 after the inauguration of the assembly plant, which is about 95 percent complete.
He stated that measures were being put in place to ensure the safety of some 120 young men and women who would be working at the site.
The spacious plant, almost equivalent to the height of a two-storey building, is being constructed with coated roofing sheets.
Apostle Sarfo reiterated the need for educational institutions to inculcate technical and vocational training in their curricular to enable the youth offer employable skills in sectors where they were most desired.
Calling for more government attention to support the development of the manufacturing sector, he advised the public not to ridicule his efforts at transforming the site into a world-class technology center.
‘Whatever we set our minds to achieve, it could be accomplished. We need to show more confidence in the efforts of the Black man and stop the over-reliance on foreigners,’ he said.
He urged the youth to utilize his expertise to help transform the country.
Emmanuel Donkor, Executive Secretary of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, stated that further studies were being conducted so that the center would be accredited fully to become a mainstream training institution for the youth under the Council for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (COTVET) programme.
