- Kantanka Automobile readies their very own version of the Bugatti Veyron
- This follows reports of a Volkswagen Plant about to be established in the country
- Some Ghanaians have however expressed their opinion on the matter
YEN.com.gh has sighted some photos of a soon-to-be-released Kantanka's version of Italy's luxury car, Bugatti.
This follows news which saw President Akufo-Addo sign an agreement with manufacturers of VW, Volkswagen, to establish an assembly plant in Ghana.
When the MoU was announced and eventually signed, the CEO of Kantanka Automobile Company, Kwadwo Safo Jnr, indicated his unhappiness over the move to promote foreign products.
Kwadwo Safo Jnr was of the view that Ghana needed good policies to govern the automobile sector and growing the local industry.
The chief executive officer (CEO) of Kantanka Automobile Company, Kwadwo Safo Jnr, took to social media over the agreement between the government and VW to establish an assembly plant in Ghana.
In a tweet sighted by YEN.com.gh, Kwadwo Safo Jnr sent a message across to President Akufo-Addo, stating that the only thing Ghana needed was good policies to govern the automobile sector.
Kwadwo Safo Jnr. Wrote: “Mr. President. The only thing we need is good policies to protect the automobile industry and help grow our local industries.”
In reacting to the issue, the Ghanaian outfit is believed to be readying itself to launch the Kantanka Bugatti.
It is a fact that the Bugatti would be ranked as one of the world's most expensive cars, making it hard for the average Ghanaian to afford one of such luxury cars.
These sentiments have been captured in the words of many Ghanaians, including, Kofi Bentil who was of the view that the Bugatti was going to be too expensive for the average Ghanaian.
He wrote, "Kantanka wants to build a copy of Bugatti Veyron in Ghana. That exactly is the problem!! They shd be building vehicles for the masses and working people !!!"
Some other Ghanaians who shared the same sentiment also expressed their opinion on the matter.
David also expressed his concerns on the matter.
Roland wanted to find out which roads in Ghana the Bugatti would be driven on.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo recently met with the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel and an agreement was reached for there to be a establishment of a VW plant in the country.
“There are so many areas that our bilateral relationship has offered us, but the key part of it for me is the emphasis on investment and trade cooperation,” President Akufo-Addo said.
But Safo Jnr. believes the move would not help Ghana in anyway as far as his company and that of other local industries were concerned.
In an earlier interview with GHone TV monitored by YEN.com.gh, Kwadwo Safo claimed his company was not scared of any competition the German automobile company may pose to them.
