"That is why you find that all over the world, and Ghana is not an exception, some of the people who are serving this country in a variety of situations are Freemasons. Whether in government, in opposition, in industry, in the clergy, in the health sector, every sphere of human endeavor."

Former president John Kufuor has also refuted such claims in the past, stressing that Freemasonry is not a religion.

Kufuor and the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, have in the past been spotted in Britain for meetings of Grand Masters of the Freemasons.

Freemasonry is not about human sacrifices reported previously that the Grand Lodge of Ghana has rubbished claims and perceptions that Freemasonry has been engaging in human and other sacrifices for wealth and power.

According to the mother body of Freemasons in Ghana, the group has unfortunately become synonymous with occultism and evil practices of idol worship because of the activities of unscrupulous persons who would do anything for fame and wealth.
