The Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) has refuted claims that the Suzuki S-Presso vehicle model which is being marketed by CFAO Ghana is not safe for use as suggested in a trending video.

The GSA in a statement said the vehicle model “in the video is neither meant for, nor, is marketed on the Ghanaian market.”

The Team Lead for Vehicle Homologation and Conformity Assessment at the GSA, MacMillan Prentice indicated that “the Suzuki S-Presso model marketed by CFAO Ghana on the Ghanaian market is homologated (certified and approved) by the Ghana Standards Authority and meets the requirements of National Standards, including provisions concerning the approval of vehicles with regard to the protection of the driver against the steering mechanism in the event of an impact.”

The statement further disclosed that its Team Lead for Vehicle Homologation and Conformity noted that: “Surveillance inspections carried out by Vehicle Conformity Assessment Officers of the Authority on Wednesday 31st August 2022, confirm that the approved model of the Suzuki S-Presso is what is being marketed on the Ghanaian market by CFAO Ghana.”
