In a statement issued by the Minister of the Interior, Ambrose Dery MP, the General Public was reminded that Friday December 6th 2019, which marks FARMERS DAY, is a Statutory Public Holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country.

Farmers Day in Ghana is observed on the first Friday in December.
