A wholly owned Ghanaian bank authorized to undertake a broad range of banking Services, has finally purchased a car assembled locally by Kantanka Automobile.
According to the award winning bank, the decision to buy the Kantanka cars was made in a bid to serve as encouragement to others to purchase locally made products.
Receiving the cars on behalf of the bank, Head of Consumer and Asset Finance, Christian O. Apah said, it was their desire to promote locally manufactured products.
According to him, the company would have gone far if Ghanaians supported the owner of the company when he started.
He admonished government to create an enabling environment for Ghanaian owned businesses so they can expand and create more jobs.
‘’We need to support our own. If the Chinese could support their own, we can support our own and Ghana could become one of the power houses In Africa.’’
On his part, General Manager for Kantanka Automobile, Francis Cudjoe admonished corporate institutions and government agencies to emulate UniBank in purchasing the made in Ghana cars.
He revealed that the company has gone into a collaboration with bank to allow individuals saving with the bank and government workers to buy the cars on a long term loan facility.
The cars, Kantanka Onantefo and Omama were purchased at GHC 280,000 cedis.
