The Emir in a statement signed by the National Secretary of Shehu Alimi Foundation for Peace and Development, Mallam Abdulazeez Arowona, disclosed that the appointment was based on his selfless services to the nation over the years.

While performing the installation, Alhaji Sulu Gambari charged Oyawoye who is also the first Professor of Geology in Africa to see his new status as a challenge towards doing more for humanity in general and Kwarans in particular.

He also admonished the retired varsity don to work assiduously towards uniting the People of his immediate community as part of efforts towards promoting unity in diversity especially among religions adherents

In his response, Prof. Oyawoye thanked the monarch for finding him worthy of the appointment and promised to uphold the unique qualities in him even as he pledged to justify the confidence reposed in him.
