The Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr. Eugene Arhin has finally broken his silence since his wife’s divorce petition hit the internet.
The scandal made headlines on major news portals in the country, however, Mr. Arhin had been quiet on the issue until Thursday afternoon. He took to Facebook to reclaim the last piece of dignity the court of public opinion had left him.
“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. In as much as many of the claims levelled 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.”
Ghana’s social media space has been washed by the petition of Mrs. Gloria Assan Arhin who is the wife of the current Director of Communication at the presidency under the Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo administration.
Mrs Arhin has filed a divorce from her husband on grounds of abuse and adultery and is demanding among others, two million Ghana cedis (GHC2,000,000) in compensation as sighted in the court file by KwadwoSheldon.com.
