A statement from Ghana's Ministry of the Interior, signed by Sector Minister, Benjamin Kunbour, has announced that Friday, December 2, 2011, had been declared a statutory non-working public holiday throughout Ghana on account of the upcoming Farmers Day.
Such re-confirmations of the Farmers' Day public holiday is common in Ghana (2010-12-02), as its date was moved a few years ago (2008-11-06).
In addition, adding to the confusion surrounding the Farmers' Day public holiday, every 4 years (2004-10-25 and 2000-10-27), the Farmers' Day events are dissociated from the date of the actual Farmers' Day non-working public holiday, as presidential elections in Ghana are set to the fixed date of December 7, every 4 years. This is not the case this year, but it is expected to be the case again, next year, in 2012.
