President Akufo-Addo has declared election day Monday, December 7 as a public holiday which must be observed nationwide.

This comes to render Friday, December 4, 2020, which is usually observed as Farmer’s day null.

A statement from the president said because November 6, 2020, was observed as Farmers’ Day ahead of time, it wouldn’t be a great idea to have Friday, December 4 observed as a holiday.

According to the content of the statement, Monday has been declared as a holiday to allow for the swift exercising of the franchise by citizens and to make space for the strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocols.

Also, all political parties together with the Electoral Commission (EC) have agreed to the new adjustment since it will help to give Ghanaians the chance and stressfree day to go to the polls to vote.

Part of the statement reads: “Under section 3 of the Public Holidays and Commemorative Days Act, 2001 (Act 601), the President has the power to declare any other day as a public holiday, instead of a day specified as a statutory public holiday.”
