Kwadwo Safo to produce cars in commercial quantity

The Apostle Safo Suaye Technology Research Centre
(ASSTRC), a local automobile assembly plant, will be
ready in May, 2014.
So far, all the machines and equipment which would
be used for the moulding of the vehicles have been
built with only the installation scheduled to be completed by January 15, 2014.
When completed, the project, which is an initiative
of Ghanaian industrialist, Apostle Dr Kwadwo Safo,
would see the production of between 120 and 240
cars daily.
The first phase of the production would include the manufacture of Pick-up and Saloon cars in
commercial quantities.
Apostle Safo’s 2013 Technology Day Exhibition
Briefing the press at Gomoa Mpota, the
manufacturing site in the Central Region, the
founder and Leader of the Kristo Asafo Mission, Apostle Safo said the press conference was to
provide opportunity for journalists to have first-hand
information about various technology equipment,
which would be displayed at this year’s Technology
Exhibition, scheduled for December,29.
Some of the inventions to be displayed in this year’s exhibition day include electricity supply machines
with powerful local devices installed within vehicles
without engines being operated by a sensor and a
robot security guard.
Why Africa is still lagging behind
According to Apostle Safo, one major reason why Africans continued to lag behind developed countries
was the lack of confidence in made-in-Africa
products.
He said since many Africans, particularly Ghanaians,
placed more confidence in foreign goods than locally
manufactured products, local investors “are not motivated and encouraged to expand their
businesses”.
Apostle Safo said if Africans, for that matter
Ghanaians, “do not see their own, then the country
would continue to be underdeveloped”.
Government support He said despite the lack of support, he would never
be discouraged in his endeavour, adding “my
mission is to prove that Africans are capable of doing
anything in this world”.
He said one of the ways the government could help
local businesses was by creating the enabling environment for them to operate, adding “ for
instance, once full production begins, government
could instruct its agencies not to import vehicles
again but rather order from ASSTRC”. Source: graphic.com
