The Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr. Eugene Arhin, Gloria Assan Arhin filed a law suit against her husband over verbal and physical abuses and adultery.
She is accordingly praying the court for a divorce.
The suit which was filed at the Matrimonial Division of the Accra High Court on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, has been successfully leaked.
Ghanaians have been concerned about the details of letter talking about his properties that he allegedly got within the four years that he served as the director of communication at the presidency.
In the said suit also, Mrs. Arhin who said she and her husband married in 2012 listed various properties they acquired together as a couple and prayed that the court grants her ownership of portions of the properties she listed.
She also wants the court to declare her joint owner in equal share with the respondent in all properties acquired in the course of their marriage.
Reacting to the news in a Facebook post , the Director of Communications at the Presidency vehemently denied the allegations and described the allegations as baseless.
According to the communicator, he is yet to be served the suit and he is ever ready to get his lawyers to mount appropriate defence to the suit.
He said for the sake of his wife’s dignity and children he has chosen to be silent on the issue and will do any sort clarifications he has to make in court.
In a short statement on Facebook, Mr Arhin said:
“I have seen a divorce petition filed by my wife, which has been deliberately leaked all over social media obviously to achieve a certain effect. I have still not been served with these court processes, and, upon receipt, my lawyers will respond accordingly”.
“Every marriage has challenges, and such challenges should not be addressed in the court of public opinion.
“I will not, for the sake of my children, and for the dignity of my wife, engage in any public banter.
“Inasmuch as many of the claims leveled against me are baseless and untrue, especially with respect to properties and physical abuse, I will hold my peace and deal with them in the court of law”
