The north-central coordinator of the group, Aliyu Musa Pass in a statement said Tinubu's courage and ability to speak up when required saved the nation from chaos.

As reported by The Nation, he said:

“And by that singular action, Tinubu also saved the nation from going up in flames as a consequence of the raging public anger that pervaded the atmosphere before the sudden 10 days extension.
“Tinubu, proving himself a great statesman, in his now famous Abeokuta declaration, took the bold and necessary step of alerting on the dangers inherent in the new naira policy, its timing and deadline.
