President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has come under strong scrutiny after sharing photos of him finally fulfilling the promise of Volkswagen (VW) getting an assembly plant in Ghana.
Ghanaians did not understand why the president would use such a great platform as his to sort of promote a company which is obviously competition to Kantanka Automobile.
Kantanka Automobile has been in operation for years now and Ghanaians believe the president should have given the company the same opportunity.

The reactions from Ghanaians on the post of the president is quite interesting to read.
Pãul Mõre said he should use his platform to promote Kantanka Automobile:
Kantanka has been manufacturing cars in this country for some years now, not even a single post from you. Now you are promoting a foreign company for votes.
Abdul Fatawu Muaz said he should use the same effort to promote cars made in Ghana:
So you are happily posting this to campaign with when you could have used that same effort to promote your own country's made cars (Kantanka cars). Ghanaians are wising up oo so you politicians should better start doing something sensible.
Nii Moffatt was surprised about the unemployment rate:
Is this a good reason enough to ban accident cars that employ lots and lots of Ghanaians? Why don't you open up for competition? How many Ghanaians can these companies employ? Besides the JHS leavers who learnt trade or skill in spraying and welding.
Yaw Babifaz said the president preaches virtue but practices vice:
A promise has been fulfilled right, Mr President, you are patronising made in Ghana goods but you don't mean what you said. Instead of putting resources to our own indigenous businesses we are rather helping foreign investors.
Fo D'Satchi also said he didn't promote a Ghanaian brand on his page:
You didn’t promote a Ghanaian brand that’s been making/assembling cars for decades, but here you are doing cheap politics with this one.
Stunna Boy Smoke called on the president to rather promote Kantanka:
Go and help Kantanka please Mr president. That is our pride. These people will start employing Ghanaians as cleaners and security while they bring their people to enjoy the real benefits.
