Former president John Agyekum Kufuor and Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II will grace the launch of a book detailing activities of Freemasons.
The book authored by Abraham Gyesie, also a Freemason, is titled, ‘The Freemasons: Who we are, what we stand for and do, our relevance (an insider’s view)’.
The book will be unveiled at the British Council in Accra on Wednesday, November 29.
The book is under the patronage of the Asantehene who is the MW Grand Patron of the Grand Lodge of Ghana as well as the VW Grand Sword Bearer of the United Grand Lodge of England.
Kufour, who is also the Senior Grand Warden of the United Grand Lodge of England, will be launch the book.
Kufuor is no stranger having previously been honored as a Knight Commander of the Order of Bath of the UK by Queen Elizabeth II and the highest award of the Order of the House of Orange by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, among other international honors.
Abraham Gyesie’s book deals with Freemasons’ Lodges and Brethren who belong to regular Grand Lodges. It does not deal with any other organisations which may also call themselves Lodges.
The work of the Lodge is that of a school of instruction based on a system of moral and spiritual philosophy which offers its members an approach to life that seeks to reinforce thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the home and community, honesty in business, courtesy in society, and fairness in all things.

Members are urged to regard the interest of the family as paramount. Freemasonry also teaches and practises concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need. It is the duty of every Freemason to learn to interpret the symbolism of the society’s Order and to employ and exhibit the genuine principles and tenets of Freemasonry in their daily lives.
Only, thus, can he become a Freemason in fact instead of being a Freemason just in name. This is an alluring book of reference and instruction to Freemasons and non-Masons alike who are wishful of a trustworthy knowledge and guidance in Freemasonry.
“It is also hoped that non-Masons who read this book may come to appreciate the noble objectives of Freemasonry and that some may wish to join our Fraternity,” Mr Gyesie said
