President Muhammadu Buhari’s new Aide-De-Camp (ADC), Lt. Col Yusuf Muktar Dodo, has officially assumed duties on Monday at the presidential Villa, Abuja.
He took over from Col. Mohammed Abubakar who has been with the President since the start of his administration back in 2015.
Abubakar is proceeding to Santiago, Chile for a five-month Strategic and Defence Course from March 8. The course is a prerequisite for his next promotion to the rank of Brigadier-General.
Should be recalled that Dodo, who was the Academy Adjutant of the Nigerian Defence Academy, was appointed Buhari’s new ADC last month and has since been understudying Abubakar.
Abubakar, accompanied by his wife and daughter, formally handed over to the new ADC at a brief ceremony on Monday.
An ADC is one of the prominent security officials in the “inner ring” of the Presidency.
On the list of members in the category are the Chief Security Office and also the Chief Personal Security Officer.
