Ghana's Minister for the Interior, Benjamin Kunbuor, has announced that his ministry had declared Wednesday, August 31, 2011, as the date of the upcoming Eid-Ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) public holiday in Ghana.
In the past, Ghana has either declared Muslim public holidays early (2008-09-25 and 2007-12-15) as do Nigeria and Libya, or on a more middle-of-the-road date that follows the Saudi Arabian announcements (2010-09-07, 2009-09-15, 2008-12-03 and 2007-10-10).
The aforementioned declaration of August 31, 2011, as the date of the upcoming Eid-Ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) public holiday in Ghana, being one day later than most middle eastern countries is a bit of a surprise.
