The Cape Coast magistrate court on Wednesday, witnessed the legal separation between Hon. Ernest Arthur, Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly Chief Executive, and his wife, Mrs. Hetty Arthur.(locally known as Maame Efua)
Hon. Ernest Arthur accused his wife for his inability to carry out his marital rites. He claimed that his wife had refused to cook for him and to do the washing.
As a result, he filed for divorce in the Cape Coast magistrate court. They’ve been married for 14 years and have been dating since high school. They have three children: two boys and one girl.
However, his wife claimed that his husband had an extramarital affair, which resulted in a baby named Maggie. She stated that he is currently seeing Abigail, who was posted to his work place to complete her National Service there.
Abigail Okorie, a University of Cape Coast (UCC) graduate who is currently doing her national service, is accused of having office affairs with Mr. Arthur and according to reports, Abigail Okorie is currently pregnant for Mr. Arthur.
According to the story, the husband filed for divorce after confronting him and repeatedly asking him to stop the behaviour that is ruining his image as MCE.
Mr. Arthur considered his wife’s (then) confrontations over his unsolicited affairs to be a nuisance, so he filed for divorce.
According to sources, Hon. Ernest Arthur allegedly removed the E.C.G. metre they jointly acquired to operate a cold store a week after their separation without alerting her.
