First Lady Aisha Buhari on Wednesday in Abuja decorated her aide-de-camp Usman Shugaba with his new rank of assistant commissioner of police (ACP).

Mrs Buhari, who was flanked by Inspector General of Police Usman Alkali Baba, while decorating the ADC, urged him to step up his job performance to justify his promotion.

The first lady described the newly promoted officer as a highly committed and dogged policeman who performed his task with a high sense of honesty and humility.

Mrs Buhari congratulated Mr Shugaba on his promotion and urged him to take his promotion as a challenge to do more for Nigeria.

“I thank you for coming to support me to decorate one of my dogged staff, as an assistant commissioner of police. Usman Shugaba, is a highly committed senior officer in the Nigeria Police today,” stated Mrs Buhari. “I wish you all the best in your new positions.”

In his remark, the inspector general noted that promotion in the police was an achievement that came through hard work and dedication to service.

“When I received the recommendation of the promotion from the first lady that the ADC had been performing his duty diligently with honesty and dedication,” said Mr Baba. “I had no option than to put my own recommendation to the Police Service Commission for his elevation. Shugaba has today joined the league of senior officers in the Nigeria Police.”

The police boss described the police as a reputable institution, which guarantees service to humanity, and the protection of lives and property.

He charged Mr Shugaba to remain resolute in his new rank, and to continue doing a good job.

“By this promotion, you will be taken to the category of decision-making process and you are to command not less than 1,000 officers and men at any point in time,” the IGP told the new ACP. “So, I want to congratulate Shugaba for reaching this far in his chosen career in the Nigeria Police Force.”

Mr Shugaba joined the police in 2002.

He had served in various capacities within the police before his appointment as the first lady’s ADC.

Mr Shugaba served in the police command in various states, including as ADC to former IGP Mohammed Abubakar and Governor Yahaya Bello, among others.
