What started as a teenager in junior high school putting various metallic objects together to have fun is fast becoming a reality.
Kantanka Automobile, led by the CEO of Kantanka Group of Companies, Kwadwo Safo Jnr, has manufactured a new car model in the exact model of that of Odartey, and it is called Kantanka Akofena.
The CEO shared a photo of the car that is still being worked on at the factory in a post sighted on his personal Twitter handle.
A critical look at the Akofena shows that it is a replica of Kelvin Odartey’s car in shape and form.
It all started when a video of the 18-year-old JHS graduate who built a car with scraps went viral on social media and got people talking in Ghana and beyond.
The young talent subsequently earned a scholarship from Kwadwo Safo Junior who offered to mentor him to pursue his passion.
Odartey became popular on social media after he drove the self-made car to the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) centre to write his final paper.
Speculations are rife that Kantanka Automobile is probably manufacturing the new model in partnership with the young boy, a development many believe would be a turning point for the young Odartey although details are not known.
Although the alleged partnership is not confirmed yet, some social media users have been expressing their admiration for the car and the potential good news it might be for the talented young boy.
In other news, the Ghana Aids Commission (GAC) has advised men to always keep enough condoms on them wherever they go to save them from emergencies that could lead to contracting HIV or AIDS.
According to the commission’s director-General, Kyeremeh Atuahene, “using condoms was the most effective way to protect each other from new infections” since the disease is mainly spread by men.
Ghanaweb.com reported him as having said this when the GAC paid a working visit to the Ghana National Fire Service in Accra on Wednesday to present about 72,000 pieces of lubricated condoms and Behavioral Communication Change (BCC) materials on HIV and AIDS to the service to be distributed to all fire service stations across the country.
Kyeremeh Atuahene hinted that as part of the HIV and AIDS awareness month celebration, his outfit would donate condoms and BCC material to all uniform service staff across the nation, all in a bid to help facilitate the efforts aimed at stopping news infections.
He mentioned the Ghana National Fire Service, the Police, Immigration, and Ghana Armed Forces among others as beneficiaries of the intended donations to enable them to protect themselves from new HIV infections while on duty away from home.
He revealed that HIV infections have shot up in the country and staff of the uniform service are the groups with high HIV prevalence.
