Famous Ghanaian Cartoonist, Bright Ackwerh has added his voice to the ongoing battle between the Founder and leader of Perez Chapel International, Archbishop Charles Agyinasare and the traditional rulers of Nogokpo town in the Volta Region of Ghana.
In his latest release on his Facebook page, the Cartoonist painted the picture of the Archbishop kneeling before a bare chested man who could best be said to be described as the traditional rulers and or traditional spiritualists of the Nogokpo community with a bottle of drink beside him. In the cartoon, the stretch of a hand arm of the headless bare chested man emanating a thunder light which can also be said as representing the gods of thunder which has its shrine located at Nogokpo.
In the post description, Mr. Ackwerh writes:
WON’T YOU APOLOGIZE?: NO GO KPO?
Traditional spirituality vrs religious businessmen
This is a very popular scene in local Ghanaian movies and we know how those end, always, maybe because we also know which institutions fund those narratives and what their agenda is.
A little wacky sketch to test my pulse.

In that short description, Bright touched on how African movies are option funded by non-believers of that faith to demean the African traditional region.
The preacher about few weeks ago, during a programme in his church declared the town of Nogokpo as the demonic headquarter in the Volta Region of Ghana. He attributed his claim to alleged event he experienced when they were travelling from Aflao to Agbozume after a crusade in Aflao when one of this pastor’s car tire removed from under the car “mysteriously”.
His statement has since received wide condemnation and calling on him to apologize to the people of Nogokpo but he has rather in a statement in his church justified his statement.
The traditional rulers of Nogokpo like many other Ghanaians feel very offended by his statement and gave me 14days ultimatum to personal come and apologies and make peace with Nogokpo else they will advice themself.
Just a day after the press conference by the Nogokpo chiefs, Mr. Agyinasare’s Perez Chapel declared a week long fasting and prayer but yet to render the apology or meet with the rulers of Nogokpo.
