Buhari’s New ADC, Yusuf Dodo, Resumes Duties


The new Aide-de-Camp to President Muhammadu Buhari, Lt. Col Yusuf Dodo, on Monday resumed his duties at the State House in Abuja.

Dodo takes over from Colonel Mohammed Lawal Abubakar who has been President Buhari’s ADC since the inception of his administration in 2015.

Abubakar, who bowed out today, is proceeding to Santiago, Chile for a five-month Strategic and Defence Course from March 8.

According to military sources, the course is a requirement for the promotion to the rank of a brigadier-general.

Until his appointment, Lieutenant Colonel Dodo was the Academy Adjutant of the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna.

Abubakar, accompanied by his wife and daughter, formally handed over to the new ADC at a brief ceremony on Monday.
