Due to the unplanned return of the flight to Accra, Agyinasare's scheduled arrival date on Friday, June 2, 2023, moved to Saturday, June 3, 2023.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Agyinasare is heard narrating the incident, albeit without details to his church members in the USA after arriving in the country.
"I was supposed to get here Friday morning, but we finally landed this afternoon...and I believe it's all part of God's plan because the Bible says the steps of a good man, are ordered by the Lord," he told his congregants who responded with a loud "Amen".
Agyinasare triggers controversy with a remark about Nogokpo shrine
The founder of Perez Chapel International got many Ghanaians talking on social and traditional media when he declared during a sermon that Nogokpo, a popular town in the Volta Region is the demonic headquarters of the Volta Region.
The outspoken man of God said witches and wizards have inundated the Volta Region town so much.
Members of the public, some of whom say they are residents of the town, took to social media to register their disapproval of the pastor's comment.

The pastor has not commented on the invitation but many doubt that he will honour the invitation.
