Ghana’s president-elect appoints Fani-Kayode’s ex-wife

Saratu Atta

Ghanaian president-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo, has appointed Saratu Atta as a personal assistant as he ramps up activities ahead of his inauguration Saturday.

Ms. Atta, 53, is a former wife of Nigerian politician, Femi Fani-Kayode. She has served as an executive aide to Mr. Akufo-Addo since 2009, a statement on the president-elect’s website said Wednesday.

She is amongst the three women of a total 12 appointees so far named by Mr. Akufo-Addo, but the statement did not provide further details about her new role.

The two other women are Akosua Osei-Opare, Chief of Staff to the President, and Clara Tia, a presidential staffer.

A brief citation of Ms. Atta said that she is a graduate of the University of Warwick, UK, and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics and International Studies.

She worked as a Securities Trader at First Securities Discount House in Lagos, Nigeria from 1993 to 1997, and went on to establish her own security printing company in Lagos.

She is a member of the New Patriotic Party, one of the two major political parties in Ghana, and served as the party’s campaign secretary since 2008.

She married Mr. Fani-Kayode, Nigeria’s former Minister of Aviation, in 1987 and bore him a female child named Folake in the same year. They parted ways around 1989 when Mr. Fani-Kayode found a new wife, Yemisi Wada.

  • Hah!

    I imagine the horrors and pains Madam Saratu encounter with the unstable Femi Kayode.

    • Larry

      FFK unstable? You can’t be serious!

      • She divorced him due to his mental instability caused by excessive use of drugs. He is has now gone totally insane in Nigeria, but we know insane people usually live normal lives here in Nigeria undetected because they are more mad people than sane people in the country.

  • sammyctu ode

    I hope that deranged boy called ffk will not crawl his way back to her life thinking he can make money from the Ghanaian government through her. That boy is a leech and chronic vulture. Where there is free money without working for it ffk is there.

    • Jon

      Where did that come from? FFK is not a poor man and definitely not hungry just as you are. Nonsense!

  • Arogbo


    • Yaro

      Show me who likes ugly girls!

  • Netanyahu

    FFK must have married 10 times in the past 30 years. No envy the guy sha. He must have also “shined” over 200 babes. Correct guy.

    • musa aliyu

      Or correct hooligan. Abi?

  • Say the truth

    Just using FFK’s name to sell the news. It is so nice that FFK’s sells and put food on the table of other people.

    • Olu

      You damn right. Premium Times feeding fat on the use of FFK name to make big news about his ex-wife.

      • Baka

        I believe the woman must be angry by this action of linking her with this drug addict who now hang on sentiment and hate speeches to earn a living.

  • Ossy

    so it may be through her Nigeria man sponsored you to be the president of Ghana

  • PolyGon2013

    Spread your royal oates around, FFK.

  • thusspokez

    Is she and others Akans?–The ethnicity of the President-elect Hope he doesn’t follow Buhari and appoint only Mohammeds or Aishas.

    Also note the speed of the appointment of the 72 year President-elect. He hasn’t been sworn in, yet he is ready to govern — unlike the 72 year old Buhari even 8 months after he was sworn in.

    • Baka

      To idle minds like you everything must be seen through ethno-religious sentiment.

      • thusspokez

        Maybe you are stµpid, hence you failed to see the irony in my comment– assuming you even know what irony means.

    • Chudi Anunobi

      It’s ignorant to compare the pace of events between both countries. Buhari took over a jungle and needed time to first clear the weed, whereas Akudo-Ado is taking over a relatively cleaner and more stable polity.

      • thusspokez

        Reason what your have just written: Now, if Nigeria is a jungle needing urgent clearing, is this not the very reason for a new President to take urgent actions? Or should it be Nana Akudo Ado who, according to you, would be facing far less pressing problems? You will agree with me that something is wrong with your logic!

        • Chudi Anunobi

          Buhari spent time clearing weed. Akuffo could start planting right away.

  • The Optimist

    Hummm! From Executive aide to personal assistant. Close since 2009. She is ‘climbing’ with the man.

    • Olu from South Africa

      ….and PT wants further details about her new role.

  • government

    So FFK na hit and run ?

  • westman

    Nice move. Other African countries must learn from this man. I mean,it must not be a Nigerian.

  • Rufus

    that seemed like when FFK was hardly sober… Cokehead!…. i won’t be surprised if he attempts a 2nd term……

  • PolyGon2013

    FFK is a lady’s man. He spreads his royal oates around. Don’t forget that FFK is the father of Ikemba Nnewi’s son from Bianca. He helped the old man. Now you know why FFK has been trying to support iborokiti in order to ensure that his son from Bianca become Eze Ndigbo of everywhere. Igbo kwenu. Hey!

    • Ifeanyianadu

      PolyGon2013…Freedom of speech (keyboard!) is not freedom to spread falsehood. Leave Ikemba out of this. You can have your say but not the facts.
