The NPP government of Ghana has tabled an amendment to the Public Holidays Act to cancel the Republic Day and African Union Day public holidays on Ghana, marked annually on July 1 and May 25 respectively.

In compensation, January 7 would be added as a new annual Constitution Day public holiday in Ghana, while August 4 would be a new annual public holiday in Ghana, to be named Founders’ Day, while the current, September 21, public holiday would be renamed Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Day.

Last year (18-Sep-2017), the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, had announced that he would propose legislation 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 (20-Feb-2013, 23-Sep-2012, 19-Sep-2012, 19-Sep-2011 and 20-Sep-2010, 03-Sep-2009, 04-Jun-2009, 20-Feb-2009, 30-Jan-2009 and 01-Feb-2007), marking the birth anniversary of Ghana’s first President, Kwame Nkrumah.
