In response to an invitation extended by the traditional rulers of Nogokpo, a town in the Volta Region of Ghana, Perez Chapel International has announced a one-week period of fasting and prayer for all its members.
This development comes after founder Archbishop Charles Agyinasare made comments referring to Nogokpo as the headquarters of demons in the Volta Region during a sermon.
Opinion leader Nufialaga Mawufemor Korbla Nonyigbey expressed his dissatisfaction on Friday, June 2, claiming that Archbishop Agyinasare showed no remorse in his subsequent sermon following the incident. The accusation stemmed from the perception that the Archbishop’s reference to Nogokpo was derogatory and disrespectful.
Following the concerns raised by the chiefs and people of Nogokpo, Archbishop Agyinasare apparently apologized for his remarks. He clarified that his intention was not to denigrate any specific town or its inhabitants but rather to illustrate the concept of divine protection to his congregants.
“Any misrepresentation or misinformation that has characterised the subsequent commentary and reportage is regretted,” he said on Sunday, May 28.
“My Ministry over the past 40 years has been one that has spoken up at critical times in our Nation as a spiritual gatekeeper and I remain committed to serving God’s people and our Nation as the spirit directs.”
In addition to the previous developments, it was revealed during the press interaction by Nufialaga Mawufemor Korbla Nonyigbey that Archbishop Agyinasare had been summoned to appear before the traditional council within a period of 14 days.
Following these events, on Sunday, June 4, the Presiding Bishop of Perez Chapel International, Rt. Rev. Ohene Benjamin Aboagye, made an announcement regarding the fasting and prayer session. The session was scheduled to commence on Monday, June 5, and continue for a duration of one week, concluding on Sunday, June 11.
