The move according to the youth is in protest against the refusal of the president and government to heed their plea to give them the regional capital of the new region.

The youth told the media that Presiedent Akufo-Addo during the 2016 campaign promised that he will make Nkoranza the capital of the Bono East Region after its creation.

Another reason they assigned for deserting the NPP is the fact that the president and the government failed to also fulfill the promise of paying all the victims of DKM, God is Love and other customers of the defunct financial companies.
