The CEO of the Kantanka Automobile Company widely known as Kwadwo Safo Jnr, has advised the Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo led government to limit the plenty vocabulary and slags, to put proper measures and policies to help struggling local automobile manufacturers in the country to survive.
According to the CEO of the Kantanka Automobile Company, successive government’s have consistently neglected the policies and quota systems to enable the local automobile industries to manufacture and sell its brand of indigenous vehicles to Ghanaians.
CEO Kwadwo Safo Jnr in a media briefing few weeks ago made it clear that the major challenge confronting the Kantanka Automobile Company is the payment of duties on the vehicles, which are domestically manufactured.
According to the son CEO of Apostle Dr. Ing. Kwadwo Safo, the company pays 29.5 per cent duty, comprising five per cent import duty, import VAT 17.5 per cent and other charges constituting five per cent, on completely knocked down vehicles (CKD) which attract no tax in other countries including Nigeria.
Kantanka Automobile Company manufactures vehicles ranging from SUVs (Onantefo 4×4), Mini SUVs (K71), Pickups (Omama) and Saloon (Mensah and Amoanimaa) respectively.
Check out the tweet of the CEO of Kantanka expressing his disappointment in the Nana Addo led government:
“Let’s limit the plenty vocabulary and slangs and actually put time and effort into proper industrialization. Sick and tired of the plenty talking and empty promises. Let’s help build a great Ghana. Am out”.
