Ghana's Minister of Interior, Mark Woyongo, following its earlier announcement that Saturday, July 18, 2015, had been declared as the date of the upcoming 2015 annual Eid-Ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holiday in Ghana, has announced that Ghana's President, John Mahama, has by an Executive Instrument also declared Monday, July 20, 2015, as a statutory non-working public holiday in Ghana "because the Eid-ul-Fitr falls on a weekend".

Earlier this week (13-Jul-2015), Saturday, July 18, 2015, had been declared by Ghana's Ministry of the Interior, on the recommendation of Ghana's National Hilal Committee (NHC), as the date of the 2015 Eid-Ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) public holiday in Ghana, in line with past announcements (21-Jul-2014, 05-Aug-2013, 16-Aug-2012, 26-Aug-2011,25-Sep-2008,15-Dec-2007, 07-Sep-2010, 15-Sep-2009, 03-Dec-2008 and 10-Oct-2007) and with the list of official 2015 non-working public holidays in Ghana, announced earlier this year (03-Jan-2015).

At the time, the National Hilal Committee had also asked the Ministry of the Interior of Ghana to declare Monday, July 20, 2015, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Ghana ("In accordance with section 2 of the Public Holiday (amendment) Act 1995, it will be appreciated if Monday 20th July is declared as a statutory public holiday"). Thus, as per the aforementioned announcement, "The general public is hereby, informed that Monday 20th July 2015, has been declared a public holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country".
