Nogokpo vs Agyinasare: Nat’l Peace Council intervenes
National Peace Council says its Volta Region branch has begun a process to engage all parties for an amicable redress of the impasse between authorities of Nogokpo, a town in the Region, and founder of Perez Chapel International Archbishop Charles Agyinasare.
The Council has, therefore, called for calm and admonished parties not to give in to any provocations.
“The Council calls on all those who have been affected in any way by the stalemate to exercise restraint and circumspection in their comments and pronouncements on the matter,” it said in a statement issued by Chairman Rev Dr Ernest Adu-Gyamfi.
This follows a 14-day ultimatum given to Archbishop Agyinasare to report to Nogokpo over commentary he made after the traditional authorities raised concerns about his citing of the town as the demonic headquarters of the Volta Region.
The man of God was seeking to clarify his allusion to the town in a recent sermon, to the extent of apologising to the good people of Nogokpo.
But led by Nufialaga Mawufemor Korbla Nonyigbey on Friday, June 2, the authorities said the Perez Chapel International founder showed no remorse, hence the summon.
The National Peace Council called attention to all and sundry in Ghana about the peaceful coexistence between different faiths.
“The Council further urges the media and all those who make statements on the matter to exercise maximum restraint in their narratives to protect the peace, stability, and the integrity of our beloved country,” it urged in the statement.
