Dr Kwame Addo-Kufuor, Ghana's Minister of the Interior, has announced that Tuesday, September 30, 2008, was to be the date of the statutory public holiday to enable Muslims to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan).

The date of September 30 is quite early as most of the Middle East and Africa will be celebrating the End of Ramadan on October 1st, while most non-Arab Muslims in Asia will celebrate it on the 2nd of October. The only 2 other countries to hold the event at such an early date are Libya and Nigeria.
