August 4 declared public holiday in celebration of Founders Day


The Ministry of Interior has announced that Wednesday, August 4, 2021, will be observed as a public holiday.

Founders’ Day is a national public holiday observed in Ghana annually to commemorate the contributions of all the people, particularly the ‘Big Six’ who led the struggle for country’s independence.

According to the Ministry of Interior, this year will be no different. As such, next week Wednesday is to be observed as a statutory public holiday.

The general public is hereby informed that Wednesday, 4th August 2021 which marks Founders’ Day, is a Statutory Public Holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country,” a communique from the Ministry of Interior signed by its Minister Ambrose Dery has announced.

As of June 2021, there are eleven annual federal holidays in the United States, and one additional quadrennial holiday (Inauguration Day).

As July 2021, there 20 holidays in Ghana.

Do the analysis.

The Akufo-Addo government wants to abolish certain state holidays and bring holidays that satisfy his Dankwa Busia tradition. He wants his grandmother and father to be part of the founders of Ghana. We all know kwame is the leading founder of Ghana. Too many holidays this year alone and I can’t even remember what they were for.
