Media mogul High Chief Raymond Alegho Dokpesi finally lost out as President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan this evening announced Brig.-Gen Jones Oladehinde Arogbofa as his new Chief of Staff. Dokpesi was the favorite to replace his kinsman, Chief Mike Oghiadomhe, who lost his job last week but his choice was stoutly opposed by one of Jonathan’s political godfathers, the Ijaw leader, Pa. Edwin Clark, who insisted that Dokpesi cannot be trusted as he in the past worked over-zealously against Jonathan.  

Brig-Gen. Arogbofa, a retired Officer of the Signals Corps of the Nigerian Army, was born on November 10, 1952. He hails from the Akoko South West Local Government Area of Ondo State. His appointment was announced via a statement by Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), Reuben Abati.

Abati said: “In addition to administrative capabilities and experience garnered from a distinguished career in the Nigerian Army, Brig.-Gen Arogbofa brings an impressive array of academic qualifications to his new job.

“They include a Diploma in Communications Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology, USA, a Bachelor of Sciences Degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Sciences Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alabama, USA and a Masters Degree in Military Arts and Science from the United States Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

“The new Chief of Staff holds several military honours and awards including Mss, Fss, Fsc and Fwc and is also a member of the Nigerian Society of Engineers.

“His appointment is with immediate effect and he has taken up his new post at the Presidential Villa.”
