The Director of Communications at the Jubilee House (Ghana’s Presidency), Eugene Arhin, has made it to the global top 100 list of ‘Most Influential People of African Descent’.
The MIPAD recognition which focused on influential people under 40 identifies high achievers of African descent in public and private sectors across the world.
It is in support of the International Decade for People of African Descent, proclaimed by United Nation’s General Assembly.
MIPAD is also a progressive network of relevant actors to join together in the spirit of recognition, justice and development of Africa, its people on the continent and across the Diaspora.
Arhin, 35, graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Materials Engineering. He worked as a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Materials Engineering for a year and joined the Danquah Institute as a Research Analyst in 2008. He was with the Institute until February 2014 when he became Press Secretary to then-candidate Akufo-Addo.
In 2017, he was appointed Director of Communication at the presidency when President Akufo-Addo defeated John Mahama.
His job entails speech writing, communications packages, coordinating announcements, creating media appearances for the President, crafting communications responses, liaising with the media, amongst others.
