Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka
Dr. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka, born on 26th August 1948 at Bekwai in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. He is dubbed “The Star of Africa”, Kantanka is a self made Inventor, Innovator, Chemist, Preacher, and Philanthropist. Known for exploring the link between Religion and Technology, Dr. Safo has founded churches, organizations, made many business and technology investments, builds cars, airplanes, helicopters, armored vehicles, construction vehicles, and most recently launched Africa's fist line of commercial automobiles. Kantanka Automobile Company Limited manufactures cars, trucks, and SUV’s commercially and has caught the eye of the Ghanaian government who look to purchase a large number of vehicles for state institutions. Dr. Safo broke the glass ceiling to help lay down the platform for a New Africa. (New Africa is a common term used by progressives in the unofficial “New African Movement”).
Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka is a patriotic African and strong believer in the creation of wealth within the borders of each country rather than relying on foreign assistance. For him, no empowerment is as effective as self-empowerment. He believes that the Blackman is capable of managing his own affairs. Hard work and perseverance are his most cherished words. He teaches that, the way to success is identifying talents, improving on them and applying same to the benefit of society. He believes that God created everyone in his own image; therefore, everyone is created for a purpose and has equal capabilities and abilities to redirect his/her destiny. The challenge then is for Africans to identify that purpose and apply their abilities to the freedom of the continent and to the glory of God.
His mission is to empower Africa through the application of science and technology to uplift the sunken image of the African continent and make it economically independent. Civilization started from Africa but currently, Africa is lagging behind in technology and so many things. Africa is seen by some as a continent of darkness and it’s been associated with inferiority. Apostle Safo aims to restore the lost glory of this mighty continent. “My mission is to redeem Africa” – Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo Kantanka
