Ghana's Minister of the Interior, Ambrose Dery, has announced that the Government of Ghana had declared Thursday, May 25, 2017, as a statutory non-working public holiday in Ghana on account of the upcoming African Union Day annual public holiday.
The aforementioned announcement that Thursday, May 25, 2017, had been declared a statutory non-working public holiday in Ghana, and other similar ones of the past (2015-05-20 and 2013-05-24), is in line with the list of official 2017 non-working public holidays in Ghana, announced earlier this year (2016-12-30).
On a related note, last year (2016-05-30), the leader of Ghana's Progressive People's Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, had announced that if he won the December 2016 presidential elections in Ghana, he would act to cancel the annual, May 25, non-working public holiday of Ghana ("This will be on my hit list as the President of the Republic of Ghana").
