Yusuf Dodo, a lieutenant-colonel with the Nigerian army, has taken over as the new aide-de-camp (ADC) to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Dodo’s nomination was accepted by the president in January, following the nomination of Mohammed Abubakar, the outgoing ADC, for a promotion course.

Abubakar, a colonel, was nominated to attend a five-month strategic and defence course at Santiago, Chile, from March 8 till July 30, 2021.

The course is a prerequisite for his next promotion to the rank of a brigadier-general.

Abubakar handed over to Dodo on Monday at a brief ceremony in Abuja, after the new ADC had understudied him for almost three weeks to learn the ropes of his new assignment.

Until his nomination, Dodo was the adjutant of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna.

The office of the ADC works with other agencies to provide security for the president and his family.

The ADC also attends to the personal needs of the president and other matters regarding his functions as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
