The renovation has caused the drivers and traders to be relocated to a temporal station in the city. According to the affected traders and drivers, President Mahama assured them during his tour of Brong Ahafo last week that the terminal would be ready within a week.

The aggrieved drivers and traders however claim that they have heard from the authorities since the President's visit. Hence, they besieged the terminal to protest against the delay.

The Assembly sent military men to evict the protesters from the terminal which resulted in a clash.

Some drivers also were protesting because they believed that the terminal would be handed over to the OA transport company, something they have vowed to resist.

Meanwhile, the Municipal Chief Executive of Techiman, Philip Oppong Amponsah has assured them that the terminal will be commissioned and opened on Tuesday, April 10 .
