According to Joy News report, supporters of the two political parties have taken over a popular bus terminal at Alabar, a suburb of Kumasi, causing confusing for operators of the terminal.

This was said to have angered some officials of Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU), operators of the bus terminal questioning their authority to make changes.

The misunderstanding between the two groups got heated, with members of the NPP accusing the operators of mismanagement.
