Does Shepard have to use the abilities for the achievements?

Been cleaning up some achievements in ME. I feel like I've used all of the biotic powers at least 75 times, but with Liara. Does it need to be Shep?

No. You just have to command them to do the abilities

Oh... crap, I was just letting them to do their own... I guess that doesn't count?

I found a guide on wikia saying that Shepard had to perform the abilities. It seems accurate to me as I've used other characters' abilities a lot, maybe more than the abilities I've actually gotten the achievements on, and haven't received the achievements for abilities my Shepard doesn't have.

Looks like I'm going to have to roll an Adept and Engineer to clean up those achievements :\

I made an adept and engineer and used the abilities myself.

I don't know if that's the only way or not, but better safe than sorry.

I did it by rolling engineer/adept and using the abilities on the mako for like half an hour. I think it has to be in an area where you can get in and drive it though, so not on the Normandy.
