Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has been appointed a Senior Grand Warden of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE).
His appointment was made on Wednesday, 26 April 2017, by the United Grand Lodge of England Grand Master, Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent, who is the longest serving Grand Master.
“Congratulations to Right Worshipful Brother, His Excellency John Kofi Agyekum Kufuor, PGS wdB, former President of the Republic of Ghana, who has been appointed Senior Grand Warden by the Grand Master, His Royal Highness, The Duke of Kent,” the lodge announced on its Facebook page.
The United Grand Lodge of England has about 200,000 members come from all walks of life and meet as equals whatever their faith, ethnic group or position in society.
“For many, this spirit of fellowship is what they value most. Making new friends, helping others, following a family tradition and participating in the ceremonial are also important,” UGLE said on its website.
The lodge contributes over £30 million a year as one of the UK’s largest charitable givers. “Raising funds largely through voluntary donations, we support individual members, local communities and global emergencies.”
