A group of northern youths under the umbrella of the Coalition of  Civil Society for Good Governance has backed the calls for the presidency to be zoned to the southern part of the country in 2023 for the interest of justice and equity.

He, however, urged the former Vice president to project national interest outside of his desire to become the President.
