Many talents abound in the country and yet to be discovered. It only takes opportunity for one to be discovered. Ghana’s only car maker is Kantanka owned by Emeritus Dr. Apostle Kwadwo Safo.
He is noted for many flashy cars in the country and has been an active competitor with foreign car models. Today Friday September 18, 2020 marks the end of the Basic Education Certificate Examinations in Ghana.
One of the darling boys of the just ended examinations is Kelvin Odartey. Odartey is 18 years and at this age manufactured his own car through scraps. He drove the car to write his papers in the course of the week. He spoke to Afia Pokua on UTV’s Mid-day news and shared some insights on the invention. Kelvin noted that he was helped and financed by his friends.
He says he has been living with his mum after his father passed away. The car has 2 doors and an engine from a relative. His late father’s friend also assists and lends him his welding machine to work with.
He complained of not getting enough materials for a better car. He maintained that during growing up whenever he saw a car he heard a voice telling him that he can create one himself.
This conviction made him try new things like aero planes. He said that he need funding for great things in the future. Indeed, the future looks bright for Kelvin Odartey. We pray he gets the right funding and education to manifest his God given talents to Ghana and the world.
