According to him, the times, in which we live, demand that we, all, be in a hurry to deal with the problems we face.
“In 2017, I told the world that I’m in a great hurry to get things done to move this country forward and you saw the action. I’m serving notice that in 2018, I’ll move with supersonic speed.”
President Akufo-Addo was speaking when he joined hundreds of Ghanaians to celebrate the innovative works of the founder of Kantanka Technology Center for Excellence of Apostle, Dr Kwadwo Sarfo on Sunday.
He disclosed that his government is fashioning out a programme to support great inventors like Apostle Dr Kwadwo Sarfo as the country strives to be self-sufficient.
“You’ve heard me say repeatedly that I want us to build a Ghana beyond aid, and we need to be self-sufficient. And that will be possible when we are masters of technology like Apostle Kwadwo Sarfo is trying to be. Indeed he’s a unique person and we need a lot of youth to understudy him so that his legacy will live on even when he passes on.”
The 37th edition of the programme saw the display of locally made luxury cars including the Kantanka Mensah which is priced at GHC130,000 and the Kantanka Amoanimaa, which is sold at GHC70,000. Several other inventions were displayed.
