“On the 25th of last month, during our Supernatural Empowerment Summit, Archbishop Charles Agyinasare made a statement concerning the Nogokpo issue. I think we are all aware of the issue in Ghana. It is trending on social media and other platforms. We, the Perez Council, on behalf of the Executive Council, have taken notice of all these things and this is what the Executive Council is saying. We are declaring a one-week fast from the 5th to the 11th of this month, and we expect all pastors, elders, deacons, deaconesses, and all our churches to participate in this fast for one week. We believe that God is our helper. He is our rock. He is the one we look up to. So this is the decision we have taken for now. We expect everyone [in all our branches] to take part in this fast,” he said.

The controversy involving Archbishop Agyinasare arose on May 25 when he made remarks during a church service about the Nogokpo shrine. In his sermon, Archbishop Agyinasare referred to Nogokpo as the “demonic headquarters” of the Volta Region and made additional claims about the Nogokpo deity.

Nogokpo shrine is a well-known traditional shrine in Ghana associated with the god of justice.

The elders of the shrine were angered by Archbishop Agyinasare’s comments and summoned him to appear before them within 14 days or face their wrath.

Archbishop Agyinasare has since clarified that he did not intend to insult or demean the people of Nogokpo.
