Ghana's Deputy Minister of Interior, James Agalga, has issued a statement indicating that Monday and Thursday, September 21 and 24, 2015, are non-working public holidays in Ghana, and that both days are statutory holidays and should be observed as such.
The aforementioned declaration of Thursday, September 24, 2015, as the date of the 2015 Eidul-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) non-working public holiday in Ghana, is a day later than the dates set out in the announcement (2015-01-03) by the government of Ghana of its official list of the annual non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2015, and is most likely due to Sunday night's surprise announcement of a change in the date of the upcoming Eid al Adha by Saudi Arabia (2015-09-14).
For its part, the declaration of Monday, September 21, 2015, as a non-working public holiday in Ghana, is due to the occurrence of the upcoming Birthday of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah annual public holiday (2009-09-03, 2009-06-04, 2009-02-20, 2009-01-30 and 2007-02-01).
