He said that the people of the community in showing their appreciation had held an inter-religious prayer in seeking for a successful tenure of office for the new vice-chancellor.

Ajioye enjoined the people of the community to extend their support and cooperation to Abdulkareem in the heinous task ahead.

Mr Kazeem Adekanye, a onetime Transition Implementation Committee Chairman for Irepodun Local Government Area of the state in his remark, described Abdulkareemís appointment as a round peg in a round hole.

Adekanye said that the appointment was a morale booster and a life-time achievement for both the recipient and the community at large. He prayed for God's guidance, protection and wisdom for the new vice-chancellor to succeed in his assignment.
