Freemasons to install new Grand Master


The 32nd annual communication and the installation of a new Provincial Grand Master of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Ghana, Irish Constitution of Freemasonry, will take place at the Adae Kese Hall, of the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel in Accra on Sunday. A statement in Accra signed by Mr K H Osei-Asante, Provincial Grand Secretary of the Lodge, said personalities in business, academia, professions and politics will attend.

It said the communication and installation could be the last to be held in Ghana as plans had been made to inaugurate a Grand Lodge of Ghana.

According to the statement, Ghana would be joining a growing number of independent Grand Lodges, reflecting its national independence, sovereignty and identity.

At present there are three District and Provincial Grand Lodges in Ghana with allegiances to the mother Constitutions of Freemasonry in the world, England, Scotland and Ireland. Members of the organisation in many countries including Ghana comprise notable decision-makers and private business entities and institutions.

In Ghana some well known traditional rulers and famous personalities have been and are still members of the ancient society. Freemasonry is the largest and most widely established fraternal order in the world, devoted to the general pillars of brotherly love, relief and truth and a society that espouses moral lessons of life.
