Shortly before the meeting started, supporters of other presidential candidates insisted that Okowa must step down, since the meeting was for only presidential candidates and not vice-presidential candidates for the 2023 election.

It took several appeals to calm frayed nerves and bring the angry supporters to an agreement, for the governor to stay on at the meeting.
