- Bishop Agyin-Asare says he has no right to stop politicians from coming to his Church
- The Presiding Bishop says he deals with all people equally across the political divide
The founder and leader of the Perez Dome Chapel International, Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare, has refuted claims that he is affiliated to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to the Presiding Bishop, he is a religious leader and therefore cannot stop any politician from coming to his Church.
Speaking to GhanaWeb.com in an exclusive interview, the Bishop explained that he deals equally with all kinds of people across the political divide. Therefore he cannot discriminate based on partisan politics.
“People choose where to go to church and I can’t stop anybody from coming to church,” he said.
Bishop Agyin-Asare in his interaction, stressed that as a ‘Man of God’ he deals with everyone who comes to his Church on neutral grounds, which is clear by his relationship with some top ranking officials of the NPP and NDC in his Church.
The religious leader expressed his displeasure at the tendency of individuals to tag personalities based on their personal observations.
“I have a lot of high profiled NPP supporters in my church, people who are big-time financiers of NPP in my church. I have a number of NPP people who are my friends, I mean very close friends. People have their own perceptions and in Ghana, we tag people which is a bad thing,” he lamented.
The respected preacher mentioned he was surprised that people misconstrue his association with politicians, adding that he has had all association with all governments since the Fourth Republic.
“I have related with every government since 1996 when I was put on the protocol list. I have been involved with Former President Rawlings, was involved with Former President Kufuor, was involved with Former President Professor Atta-Mills, I have been involved with Former President Mahama and I am involved with President Akufo-Addo,” Agyin-Asare clarified.
