ABUJA, Nov 19, (THEWILL) - President Goodluck Jonathan today decorated his former aide-de-camp (ADC) and present Chief Personal Security Officer, Mr. Moses Ambakina Jitoboh, with a new rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police, at a brief ceremony in the State House, Abuja.

President Jonathan, assisted by Inspector General of Police, Hafiz Ringim, and Police Affairs Minister, Maina Waziri, during the ceremony, congratulated ACP Jitoboh, saying he has displayed gallantry and competence over the years to merit his new rank.

While wishing ACP Jitoboh success in his career, President Jonathan urged him not to relent in dedicated service to the nation, noting that, "promotion comes with more responsibility." Born on June 1, 1970, ACP Jitoboh got enlisted in the Nigeria Police Force as a cadet ASP on June 25th, 1994 and was confirmed exactly two years later as an Assistant Superintendent of Police in June 1996.

He has served the Force in various capacities as Officer Commanding, Nigeria Police Station, Ugbokolo, Benue State (June 1996- May 1999), aide-de-camp and Chief Security Officer to former Bayelsa Governor, DSP Alamieyeseigha, Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Amassomma Division in Bayelsa, and later Principal Security Officer to then Governor of Bayelsa State, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan in 2006.

On May 29, 2007, Jitoboh was appointed ADC to the then Vice President Goodluck Jonathan, and was also Acting ADC to President Jonathan when he assumed office as Commander-in-Chief of the Federation on May 6, 2010.

ACP Jitoboh holds a Masters degree in Geographic Information System and is married with four children.
