The Public Relations Officer of Ghana's Ministry of Education, Paul Krapah, has added his support to the current call to have Teachers' Day declared as a new annual non-working public holiday in Ghana.

The original call to declare a new Teachers' Day annual non-working public holiday in Ghana was made at the recent 17th annual National Best Teacher Awards ceremony.

The last annual public holiday added to the official list of public holidays in Ghana was Founder's Day, corresponding to the birthday of the first President of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, and which was made into a public holiday, shortly before the 100th anniversary by Ghana's President, John Evans Atta Mills (2009-09-03).
