Ghana's Ministry of the Interior has announced that November 5, which is this year's National Farmers' Day, would not be observed as a public holiday.
The statement signed by the Minister of the Interior, Hackman Owusu-Agyemang, states that "the statutory Farmers' Day Holiday, which is Friday December 3, remains the public holiday".
A similar dissociation of the Farmers' Day events from the actual Farmers' Day non-working public holiday, has occurred, in the past (2000-10-27), as presidential elections in Ghana are set to the fixed date of December 7, every 4 years.
