The Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin has responded to the reports following a suit filed by his spouse [Gloria Assan Arhin] seeking an annulment of their marriage.
Eugene Arhin in a Facebook post shared on Thursday February 11, 2021 said his lawyers will upon receipt of the document respond accordingly to the allegations leveled against 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”, he wrote.
“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 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”, Eugene added.
He also denied reports of property acquisition and claims of physical abuse leveled against him as untrue.
In a writ available to GhanaWeb, Gloria Assan Arhin, spouse of Eugene Arhin has filed for divorce at the Matrimonial Division of the Accra High Court citing reasons of him inflicting emotional, physical and verbal abuse on her.
The suit filed on Wednesday February 10, 2021 claimed that during the duration of their marriage, they have jointly acquired and developed a number of properties across the country.
“The Respondent [Eugene Arhin] shortly after his appointment as the Director of Communications [at the Jubilee House] started behaving in very unusual ways towards the Petitioner [Gloria Assan Arhin] and the Children and continued on this path until the relationship between the parties deteriorated completely“, the writ read.
“The marriage between the parties has for the past about four (4) years suffered irreparable damage and setbacks and all efforts by the parties and their families at amicable resolution have all failed“, it added.
