Ghana's Deputy Minister of Interior, Kobby Acheampong, has issued a statement ruling-out the declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in Ghana on Monday, January 7, 2013.

The aforementioned date of Monday, January 7, 2013, is the date of the upcoming swearing in ceremony of president elect John Mahama, who was elected president following last summer's death of president John Evans Atta Mills (2012-08-03).

Deputy Minister Acheampong did, however, state that the government of Ghana was looking at a Legislative Instrument that would make January 7 a public holiday every four years, in the future.
