Lt-Col Dodo takeover as Buhari’s ADC

President Muhammadu Buhari, new Aide-De-Camp (ADC) to Lt. Col Yusuf Muktar Dodo, has officially resumed duties at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Dodo, the Academy Adjutant of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), was appointed ADC last month.

Dodo replaced Colonel Mohammed Lawal Abubakar, who is due for the rank of Brigadier-General after completing promotional course in Chile.

He was nominated to attend a five months Strategic and Defence Course in Santiago Chile (from March 8 to July 30, 2021).

The course is a prerequisite for his next promotion to the rank of Brigadier-General in the last quarter of 2021 and posting outside the shores of the country as a Defence Attache/Adviser in keeping with the customs and tradition of recognising Officers that served as Aide-De-Camp to the President and concluded tour of duty.

Abubakar is the longest serving ADC to a civilian president, having served the president for almost six years, and the second longest serving ADC in the history of Armed Forces of Nigeria after late Colonel Walbe, who served General Yakubu Gowon as ADC for nine years.

The 48-year-old ADC, who had served in various Army units and formations within and outside Nigeria in different capacities also recommended his successor by nominating three seasoned Army Officers to the President.
