A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has hailed the appointment of his former wife by the president-elect of Ghana.
Nana Akufo-Addo appointed Saratu Atta on Wednesday as a personal assistant to serve in his government which will be inaugurated on Saturday.
“I am very happy for her,” Mr. Fani-Kayode told Pleasures Magazine by telephone Thursday evening. “She is a wonderful lady and very hardworking. I have no doubt that she will do an excellent job in her new position and so will Nana Akufo Addo.”
Furthermore he said, “Nana is a good friend of mine and more like an older brother to me. I first met him when I was ten years old and he was on his late twenties. He is a profoundly good man and exceptionally brilliant. He is also very well bred and very well educated. He went to a very good English private school, first Holmewood House, which I attended many years later, and then to Lancing College, Sussex before going to Oxford University and then later to the Sorbonne in Paris. His wife Sister Becky is also a good friend and I knew her very well when we lived in the same block of apartments in Chelsea, London when I was at University in the UK. These are truly wonderful people. I am very happy for them and very proud of Saratu. She is a wonderful lady and very hardworking. I have no doubt that she will do an excellent job in her new position and so will Nana Akufo Addo. With people like that at the helm of affairs Ghana will be in very good hands. Nana was born to lead and I am glad that he has finally been given the opportunity to do so”.
Background: Madam Saratu Atta, is the daughter of the former Governor of the old Kwara state Alhaji Adamu Atta. Her mother is a Ghanaian and she was raised in Ghana. Saratu studied at Warwick University in the UK and she and Fani-Kayode were married in London in 1987. She is the mother of his first child Folake who is a lawyer in the UK.
