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 (02-Dec-2010), as its date was moved a few years ago (06-Nov-2008).
In addition, adding to the confusion surrounding the Farmers' Day public holiday, every 4 years (25-Oct-2004 and 27-Oct-2000), 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.
