The CEO of Hubtel, Alex Bram, has made history as he became the first customer to drive a Volkswagen (VW) car assembled in Ghana.
In a post on social media, the lead of the overall development and execution of Hubtel’s long term strategy expressed his excitement about being the first client to acquire a Ghanaian VW car.
Earlier in 2020, YEN.com.gh reported that Volkswagen Ghana had successfully assembled Ghana’s first-ever domestically made VW Tiguan (Highline Plus) cars at the North Industrial Area in Accra.
Alex Bram has become the first client to drive one of the luxurious home grown cars.
In his recent post on social media, Bram wrote: ''Proud to have been the very first customer to drive out a Ghana-assembled VW car. The car itself is completely world-class.''
Ghana's Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, congratulated Alex Bram as he retweeted frames of the posh VW whip.
Meanwhile, VW Tiguan is the first model the automobile company has worked on in the country. VW Tiguan has advanced features such as panoramic views, a digital dashboard, and sensors with a 2.0 engine.
The assembling of Ghana’s first domestic cars is in line with President Nana Akufo-Addo's statement during his recent address to the nation that VW was due to start production at the end of April 2020.
In another story, Ghanaian entrepreneur, Godfred Obeng Boateng, is the CEO of A1 Bread, a company he commenced at Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
The popular bread brand has penetrated the Ghanaian market, especially at Kejetia market where the business started. In 2018, Godfred Boateng revealed the company sells more than 60,000 loaves of bread in Kumasi and Accra everyday.
The young Ghanaian businessman was speaking in an interview with Accra-based Starr FM when he said he sells 30,000 loaves of bread in Kumasi and about 30,000 in Accra respectively.
However, his journey to establishing a thriving business did not come to him on a silver platter.
