While Argungu noted that he is personally disappointed with the way the country is run, other members expressed the view that if they remain in the ruling party while being neglected, it may appear that they are comfortable with the status quo.

The aggrieved BSO members noted:

“In 2015 before elections we supported Buhari because we believed he can turn around the country in all sectors but we are seeing directly opposite of what he promised Nigerians, no one is safe in the country and the economy is almost dead, imagine a common terrorist threatening to abduct Buhari and a governor and nothing was done.
"We, therefore, cannot continue this way so very soon we will take a stand he said but the president has betrayed us we must tell him, I was one time a member of Buhari campaign organisation at Abuja, therefore, I am a stakeholder in the Buhari project."
