Orisun Igbomina is a socio-cultural group for the people of Kwara South.
Awoyale gave the commendation in a congratulatory message issued on Monday in Ilorin.
He said that the appointee was a highly reputable educationist who would build on the existing achievements in the institution.
The group’s president said that the choice of Adewumi remained one of the best things to have happened in the state.
”The new chancellor will use his connections within and outside the academia to add values to KWASU in the areas of valuable research and scholarship.
”There is no doubt that he will be good Ambassador of Igbomina land and contribute his quota to the progress of the school.
”He will also provide more insights and modern approaches to university management in a bid to assist the Abdulrazaq-led government,” he said.
Awoyale, however, thanked Abdulrazaq for his choice of Adewumi and prayed that his tenure in office would be beneficial to the university community, government and the people.
