There have been unconfirmed reports that Friday, November 6, 2020, will be a public holiday to mark this year’s National Farmers’ Day.
The Ministry of the Interior has however debunked these reports and also provided clarity on the issue.
According to a statement signed by the Minister for the Interior, Ambrose Dery, November 6, 2020, is not a public holiday even though the National Farmers’ Day will be observed on that day.
“The general public is hereby informed that Friday, 6th November 2020 is NOT a Public Holiday even though the National Farmers’ Day will be observed on that day,” the statement read.
The Minister for the Interior, however, indicated that December 4, 2020, which marks Framers Day will be a public holiday.
“However, Friday, 4th December 2020, which marks Farmers Day, remains a Statutory Public Holiday and would be observed as such throughout the country,” the statement added.
The National Farmers’ Day is usually celebrated on the first Friday of December every year, but in an election year, it is celebrated on the first Friday of November.
The 2020 National Farmers’ Day will take place in Techiman in the Bono East region. This year’s theme for the celebration is “Agribusiness Development under COVID-19 – Opportunity and Challenges.”
