Techiman is the capital of the Techiman Municipal, and one of the eleven Districts/Municipalities that successfully petitioned the President of Republic of Ghana for the creation of the Bono East region. The city borders with four Districts/Municipalities namely, the Techiman North District to the north, Wenchi Municipality to the north-west, and Nkronza South Municipality to the southeast in the Brong Ahafo Region and Offinso North District to the south in the Ashanti Region. The population of the Municipality according to the 2010 Population and Housing Census stands at 147,788 with 71, 732 males and 76,056 females with a population density of 227.7 persons per every square kilometer. Researchers and Civil Society Organizations have suggested that Techiman city be considered for the regional capital of the newly created Bono East Region, because of its robust existing social and economic features which are prerequisite for development. There are also ensuing calls by a group of elites to consider the city as the capital on the grounds that it will lessen cost which would be incurred by central Government to construct a Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) and its associated take off structures from the scratch.
