Modern KOSA Automobile, manufacturer of Kantanka range of vehicles has received government endorsement as Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur reiterates the state’s pledge to support the company.
The pledge comes after the company displayed a range of commercial vehicles at the 34th Annual Technology Exhibition of the Kantanka Group of Companies.
The Kantanka Onantefuo (SUV), Kantanka Omama (Pickup) and Kantanka K71 (Mini SUV) vehicles are produced locally by Apostle Kwadwo Safo founder of the Kristo Asafo church.
Speaking at the event, Vice President Kwesi Amissah Arthur said government will back its promises with actions.
“I am here to reiterate and emphasize that the support [announced by the Environment Minister] will be provided so that we will be able to develop to a much higher level the work that you have started here.
“You will see by our actions that we support the work that you are doing,” he maintained.
Mr. Amissah-Arthur also commended Apostle Kwadwo Safo whose inventions he said were helping Ghana to develop.
The good thing about Kantaka vehicles which put them ahead of other luxurious vehicles like the Range Rovers, Nissan Patrols, SUVs is that they are homebased, the Chief Executive of Kantanka Group of Companies, Kwadwo Safo Jnr., told Kojo Yankson on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show in November.
“The vehicles can stand the test of Ghana’s bad roads,” he touted, adding proudly that, “All vehicles are open to customization including responding to voice command to start your ignition”.
