    We can’t help you in Nigeria: we have no influence there.

    You need to be sponsored by a long-time Master Mason - it will cost the equivalent of hundreds of US dollars and from 6 months to 3 years to become a full member of a Masonic lodge

    Do NOT believe the LIES/MYTHS that Masonry makes its members RICH & POWERFUL. And strictly speaking only Masonic brothers can exchange fraternal greetings

    Google the Grand Lodge of Nigeria and make sure that you want to join for the right reasons.

    Why Warrior1256 found this humorous is that everyday this forum receives requests for help in joining. This forum is based in Texas. Why the urgency?

    I duly tender my sincere apologies for exchanging a fraternal greetings. Perharps, I felt I'm a brother already due to my constant dreams and my thoughts on joining this brotherhood. Earnestly i felt a soothe relief when I found a grand lodge in my country.

    The help I've been seeking is on how to locate a grand master in my country to help me get a petition since all my request through the grand lodge Secretary is futile.

    You’re approaching this all wrong -if you want to know how to get a petition then tell me WHY you want to be a Mason.

    Your terminology is incorrect-the grand master and grand secretary work only with worshipful masters of the local lodge.

    The Grand Master is probably like equivalent to the “president” of all masons and masonic lodges in Nigeria. They do not usually deal with other than local lodge officers.

    My laughter was directed at the cartoon, BUT if my laughter had been toward your comment.....
    Correct. It has been stated over and over in this forum that we CAN NOT assist people in joining Masonry. We can only tell you to contact the Grand Lodge that has jurisdiction over your area OR tell you that you are out of luck if Freemasonry is illegal in your area.

    The only people who can help you become a Mason are IN NIGERIA- we have no authority to act or recommend on your behalf - the grand lodges of the world are all independent and do not interfere with other grand lodge’s policies

    I understand it is quite costly and time consuming to be a Mason in Nigeria - you will probably need to have in disposable money, several hundred US dollars for application fees degree fees annual dues and charity contributions

    I see that either you are NOT reading the previous posts in this thread - I can only conclude that a) you are deliberately ignoring them and/or b) you have problems with English proficiency and understanding clear and concise English - I am breaking contact with you
