The Kantanka Technological Centre of Excellence (KTCE), a subsidiary of the Kantanka Group of Companies, has made another technological breakthrough in its operations with the launch of an advanced armoured vehicle fixed with a laser rangefinder.
The launch took place at the 38th annual Technology Exhibition of the Kantanka Group in Accra last Sunday, during which an array of products manufactured by KTCE, which is located at Gomoa Mpota in the Central Region, were on display.
The exhibition, which was on the theme: “Advancing the frontiers of science, creativity and technology through religion to transform society”, was graced by the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and other dignitaries, including the Senior Minister, Mr Yaw Osafo-Maafo; the Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng; Members of Parliament, representatives of the various security agencies and traditional leaders.
The excitement at the venue intensified when one of the V8 vehicles, christened “Kantanka Otumfuo”, ceased to move after its driver drank an alcoholic beverage moments before entering the vehicle.
Addressing the gathering, Otumfuo Osei Tutu pledged his commitment to collaborate with the Founder and Leader of the Kristo Asafo Mission and brain behind the Kantanka Group, Apostle Dr Kwadwo Safo, to establish a technical school in the Ashanti Region.
The school, he explained, would help sustain Apostle Safo’s “wonderful works” to benefit generations to come and contribute immensely to the development of science, technology and creativity in the country.
While describing the celebrated inventor as a wonderful personality whose works were beyond comprehension, the Asantehene expressed concern about the lack of interest by the state and academic institutions to tap into Apostle Safo’s developmental agenda.
He said he was committed to changing the narrative.
“The works of Apostle Kwadwo Safo go beyond science.
