Mrs. Gloria Assan Arhin, the estranged wife of Eugene Arhin, the spokesman for the Akufo-Addo, has varied the number of mansions that her husband had allegedly amassed amending her accusation that instead of over five mansions and some 32 flats, she is contesting only one mansion.
These mansions were supposedly acquired by Eugene Arhin in just four years, from 2016 to 2020.
In an amended divorce petition she has filed before the Accra High Court (Matrimonial Division) she now claims there is only one property in contention, which is an uncompleted 5-bedroom house at Santor in the Kpone Katamanso District.
The uncompleted residential property was intended to be their matrimonial home. According to the amended petition.
Gloria Assan Arhin backed down on her claims of multiple mansions owned by Eugene Arhin after Mr. Arhin’s lawyers had challenged her and threatened to put her to strict proof.
However, the amended petition does not retract claims of the luxury cars that she said her husband acquired between 2016 and 2020, the period in which he has been a spokesman for the President.
They include a Toyota Avalon vehicle with registration number GR 7108-18, a Toyota Lexus with registration GE 4646-18, Toyota Tundra with registration number GE 7108-18 and a Hyundai Elantra with registration number GE 4646-19.
As Director of Communications at Jubilee House, Eugene Arhin’s salary could not have bought those cars within a period of four years.
In his response to his wife’s petition, Eugene Arhin also asks the court to let him have all the luxury cars.
Already, Civil Society group, ASEPA has threatened to drag Mr. Arhin to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) over his mercurial rise from rags to riches just from being a Presidential spokesperson.
Mrs. Gloria Assan Arhin, who accuses her husband of cheating with women, including slay queen, Chantel Kudjawu, insists the marriage must be annulled as it is not reconcilable.
She wants custody of their three children and alimony of Ghc2million from the beleaguered Eugene Arhin.
