Liberian Leaders Who Became ‘Master Masons’ As Men Of Integrity

Since Liberia was founded as an independent nation in 1847, most the heads of state, both past and present have formed part of the Masonic Order, a fraternal organization based on the principles of Prince Hall Freemasonry. Fifteen of the twenty-five heads of state to date, including President George Weah, are members.

GNN report highlights Liberian leaders who served as ‘Master Mason’ who have focused on building themselves as people of integrity, and have also vowed to provide the structure to help achieve that goal.

According to report, being a Freemason gives members a sense of purpose, supporting and guiding them on their journey through life, collectively, members are bonded through an understanding of unity and equitability.

This fraternity brings people together irrespective of their race, religion, or other perceived differences that can divide people as a society. Members are expected to be of high moral standing, and are encouraged to talk openly about the organization.

Kindness and charitable giving are deeply ingrained within the principles of Freemasonry and the organization, provides the structure for members to make positive contributions to their communities and various causes through fundraising events or volunteer work. Individuals can make an important contribution at local, national and global level by giving both their time and money.

There are four important values that help define their path through life: Integrity, Friendship, Respect and Charity. In today’s world filled with uncertainty, these principles ring as true now as they have at any point in the organisation’s history.
