Ghana's government has released its annual list of official non-working lay and religious non-working public holidays in Ghana for the calendar year 2018.

As usual (2016-12-30, 2016-01-01, 2015-01-03, 2014-01-02, 2013-01-14 and 2012-01-25), the aforementioned list of official non-working public holidays in Ghana for the year 2018 contains estimated dates for the 2 Muslim public holidays in Ghana (2015-09-16, 2015-07-17, 2015-07-13, 2014-10-01, 2014-07-21, 2013-10-11, 2013-08-05, 2012-10-22, 2012-08-16, 2011-11-02 and 2011-08-26) as well as re-confirmation of the Founder's Day public holiday (2014-09-19, 2013-09-20, 2013-02-20, 2012-09-19, 2011-09-19, 2010-09-20, 2009-09-03, and 2009-02-20), added almost a decade ago, though no mention is made of the proposal to the Ghana legislation by the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, to designate August 4 as a new annual public holiday in Ghana to mark Founders Day, in the place of the current, September 21, annual public holiday of Ghana, marking the birth anniversary of Ghana’s first President, Kwame Nkrumah (2017-09-18).
