After 2 months of announcements by various Ministers of Ghana (Ghana's Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Netson Akatey, in September, and the Interior Minister, Prosper Bani, late last month) that Friday, November 4, 2016, the date of this year's moved Farmers' Day, would not be a non-working public holiday in Ghana, earlier today, Ghana's Deputy Interior Minister, James Agalga, announced that Friday, November 4, 2016, would in fact be a "statutory public holiday and must be observed as such".

The aforementioned announcement that Friday, November 4, 2016, the date of this year's moved Farmers' Day, would not be a non-working public holiday in Ghana, is not in line with the list of official 2016 non-working public holidays in Ghana, announced earlier this year (01-Jan-2016).

A couple of months ago (03-Sep-2016), the Public Relations Officer of Ghana's Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Netson Akatey, had issued a statement to the media informing them this year's National Farmer's Day, on November 4, would not be a non-working public holiday in Ghana.

Normally, the Farmers' Day and related public holiday of Ghana, are observed jointly on the first Friday of December. However, on election years, Farmers' Day is moved to the first Friday of November, while the associated public holiday of Ghana remains on the first Friday of December (29-Nov-2012, 29-Oct-2012, 06-Nov-2008, 26-Nov-2004, 25-Oct-2004 and 27-Oct-2000).
