Ghana's Minister of the Interior, William K. Aboah, has announced that Friday, October 26, 2012, would be a non-working statutory public holiday throughout the country on account of the upcoming Eidul-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice).

In the past, except for last year (2011-08-26), Ghana had 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).
