Monday, August 5, 2019, has been declared a public holiday to cater for the August 4 Founders’ Day which falls on a weekend.

A statement signed by the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, said in view of the day falling on a Sunday, the President has by Executive Instrument (EI), declared Monday, August 5, as a public holiday “to be observed as such throughout the country.”

This will be the first time Ghana is marking the Founders’ Day after the amendment of the Public Holiday Act.

It replaced Founder’s Day which was celebrated on September 21 to mark the birthday of Ghana’s first president, Kwame Nkrumah.

September 21 will now be observed as ‘Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Day’.
