7th January Is Now A Public Holiday. Constitution Day.

According to Interior Minister Ambrose Dey, the day ” has been declared a public holiday o mark  a constitution day”.

Tomorrow 7th is now a public holiday. All Ghanaians are to honour this day as statutory holiday throughout the country.

“…the public is hereby informed that Tuesday, 7th January which marks Constitution Day, is a statutory holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country..”

In December 2018 a bill was laid before Parliament to alter the Public Holiday Act 2001 to accommodate three more holidays.

These new occasions were seventh of January which was seen as the Constitution Day sooner in 2019, fourth of August which was depicted as the Founders’ Day and 21st of September was set apart as Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Day.

In 2017, President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, recommended that August 4 ought to be seen as Founders Day in memory of the progressive ages of Ghanaians who added to the freedom of the nation from pioneer rule and September 21 put aside as a commemoration day for Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first President who was instrumental in the battle for the sixth March freedom.

This bill was accordingly passed by Parliament and consented to by the President.
