President Akufo-Addo declares Monday, May 3, as public holiday

President Akufo-Addo has declared Monday, May 3, as a public holiday.

This, according to a statement, is because May 1, 2021, which marks May Day, falls on Saturday.

“The general public is hereby notified that Saturday, 1st May, 2021 marks May Day (Workers’ Day) which is a Statutory Public Holiday.”

“However, in view of the fact that 1st May, 2021 falls on a Saturday, His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, has by Executive Instrument (E.I), in accordance with Section 2 of the Public Holidays and Commemorative Days Act, (Act 601) declared Monday, 3rd May, 2021 as an additional Public Holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country,” the statement signed by Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, on Thursday, April 29, said.
