Lead Pastor and General Overseer of the Prayer Palace International, Prophet Emmanuel Adjei has disclosed that he would have quit serving God if Archbishop Charles Agyinasare accepted the invitation of the Nogokpo traditional council.

Archbishop Charles Agyinasare in a sermon during a church program in May, referred to Nogokpo as the “demonic headquarters” of the Volta Region.

“Nogokpo is the demonic headquarters of the Volta Region. We only have not said it but the second night, I made Bishop Yaw Adu talk about witchcraft and we disgraced the witches and the wizards. When we were driving from Aflao to Agbozome, immediately we got to Nogopko, Bishop Yaw Adu’s four-wheel drive, the tyres came out from under the car,” he said.

His words sparked controversy and drew a strong reaction from the council of elders in Nogokpo.

During an interview on #UrbanBlend with Black Rasta, Prophet Emmanuel Adjei shared his perspective on the controversy surrounding Archbishop Charles Agyinasare’s statement regarding Nogokpo, a traditional shrine in Ghana.

“I was in Canada when I heard the story, I think the people were extremists. They went too much. The man [referring to Agyin-Asare] is a statesman. He came out and made a statement. He’s been in ministry for years. He has a track record. He is not a man that creates controversies. He has a good track record,” he said

Prophet Emmanuel Adjei expressed his belief that the people who reacted strongly to the incident were extremists and went too far in their response.

“Now he slips and makes a statement and now he comes back to the same location and retracts, I think it should die there. You overstretch the issues, why do you have personal interests ?? I think it should die there,” he added.

Prophet Emmanuel Adjei, who was in Canada at the time of the incident, stated that if Archbishop Agyinasare had actually visited Nogokpo, he would have felt ashamed and would have even considered stopping his worship of God.

“Hey, I said if the Archbishop had gone to Nogokpo, I would have stopped worshipping God. Because I will feel so ashamed, and disappointed because we see him as a father, we see him as a mentor and a leader. Now you leave our territory and go there, I’ll feel very disappointed,” he added

Prophet Emmanuel Adjei also made it clear that he respects every religion but believes that no harm can come to individuals who have placed their bodies and souls in the hands of God.

“I respect every religion but they can’t do anything. Our body, soul is in the hands of God. The Bible says a curse without a curse shall not stand. I have not disrespected them, I have not abused them, and I said they went extreme,” he added.
