Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has revealed two things that he is looking up to for Freemasons to achieve in the future.

Recounting his 25-year journey in Freemasonry, he Asantehene, known within the Grand Lodge as Most Worshipful Bro Otumfuo Osei Tutu II stated that he has experienced what it unfolds and what it means to be called a Freemason and that the Grand Lord should intensify efforts to reach beyond the present familiar of influence.

“Looking forward to the future, I have two hopes. First, that the Grand Lord will grow in stature in the coming years, with dedicated brethren united in brotherly love, providing relief to the needy and acting truthly at all times. Second, it is my hope that the Grand Lord will intensify efforts to reach beyond the present familiarity of influence, and reach out to many regions, yet, untouched by our activities.” He said this on Saturday, May 25, 2024, when Freemasons  met to honour Otumfuo on the occasion of his 25th anniversary as Asantehene and his 25th anniversary as a Freemason.

The event was held at the Bro Otumfuo Sir Agyemang Prempeh II Masonic Hall, in Kumasi.

Asantehene, who is the Grand Patron of the Grand Lodge of Ghana assured that he is committed to make the contribution of Freemasonry a peaceful to our nation Ghana and our fellow Ghanaians.

“On my part, I am committed to making a contribution of Freemasonry and peace to our nation Ghana and our fellow Ghanaians. And at the same time, promote peace among our nation on this side of the world. Twenty-five (25) years ago, I was initiated into Freemasonry. There is no doubt that in joining a society or club, one cannot help but wonder what benefits or restrictions await,” Otumfuo Osei Tutu II said.

He also revealed that despite the doubts or reservations that crossed his mind when he first joined the Freemason, he has no regrets in his 25-year period in the Freemasonry.

“In the case of Freemasonry, you are left to worryingly wonder more without knowing exactly what you are going to face and with no one ready to tell you what you want to know. Whatever doubts or reservations might have crossed my mind, all I can say after the 25-year period is that I have no regrets on being a Freemason, experiencing what it unfolds and what it means to be called a Freemason,” Most Worshipful Bro Otumfuo Osei Tutu II indicated.

The National Security Minister, Albert Kan-Dapaah, Transport Minister Kweku Ofori Asiamah, Executive Chairman of Ghana Community Network Services Limited (GCNet) Dr. Nortey Omaboe, and others who are all part of the fraternal society.
