In a statement by the Director of Media in the Ooni?s Palace, Moses Olafare, he said the appointment letter was signed by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, on behalf of the President.

Olafare said, ?This appointment would enable the monarch to build more bridges of friendship, most especially across the Niger.?

The Ooni?s media Director applauded Buhari for recognising the efforts of the monarch in fostering peace and unity among Nigerians.

According to Olafare, the Ooni will bring his wealth of experience and connections to promote unity and the harmonious working relationships in the university.

Olafare also enjoined Nigerians to promote issues that could foster unity to ensure speedy development rather than playing up their differences.

?It is incontrovertible today that Ooni Ogunwusi is a bridge builder and being the youngest chancellor appointed for the only university bearing ?Nigeria? is worth the celebration.

?His appointment as chancellor, University Of Nigeria, Nsukka is considered as a positive sign that can further enhance peaceful coexistence of our dear nation,? he said.

Olafare further revealed that the Ooni would officially assume office on the 20th of February, 2016.
