I’m still married to Fani-Kayode, says Ghanaian wife


Mrs Regina Fani- Kayode ( nee Hanson -Amonoo) , the legal wife of a former Minister of Aviation , Chief Femi Fani -Kayode, says the ex - minister has never abused her in their 23 years of marriage.

She said this during a telephone interview on Monday in reaction to allegations that Fani - Kayode abused his estranged wife , Precious Chikwendu.

Regina , who is a Ghanaian, said she got married to Fani - Kayode based on Ghanaian customs in 1997 and they subsequently tied the knot at the Apapa Registry in Lagos in 2002.

She said , “ We have a beautiful daughter called Oluwaremilekun and both she and I are very proud of him . He has been a wonderful father and caring husband and he has never subjected me to any form of domestic abuse or treated me badly.

“ Reports in the media that we are divorced are fake and suggestions that I was treated in a bad way by him or subjected to any form of abuse at any time in the 23 years that we have been married are malicious and false . ”

When asked if she was aware of Fani -Kayode’ s relationship with Precious that produced four sons , she responded in the affirmative , adding that she approved of it.

Regina stated that she had relocated to Ghana and that a monogamous relationship would have been difficult for her husband hence she gave him her blessing to take another wife .

She, however , said her husband did not commit bigamy as he did not marry Precious legally but traditionally.

Precious, who is a beauty queen , recently separated from Fani - Kayode amid rumours of domestic violence.

However , neither Precious nor Fani -Kayode has agreed to speak to the media on the matter .
