Founder and leader of Perez Chapel International, Archbishop Charles Agyinasare, has reacted to the backlash he received on social media for his statement declaring ‘Nogokpo as the demonic headquarters in the Volta Region.’
During a sermon at his Church on Sunday, May 28, 2023, Agyinasare clarified that he did not intend to belittle the residents of the Volta Region, emphasizing that his wife herself is a native of the region.
He clarified that his statement was solely related to a specific incident that occurred following a crusade he conducted in his early days as a pastor.
“In reference to Nogokpo, I wish to clarify that I never intended to refer to the town but an incident that happened after a crusade at Aflao. I had absolutely no intention to cast a slur upon the people of the Nogokpo Town and the Volta Region as a whole.”
“I have had a very cordial relationship with the people of the Volta Region. My wife of 38 years is an Ewe from Keta. And two of my sons bear Ewe names. All of the examples I gave were not intended to denigrate any of the towns and their people but to elucidate the principle of divine protection to congregants.”
“Any misrepresentation or misinformation that has characterised the subsequent commentary and reportage is regretted. 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,” he stated.
