The Interior Ministry has declared May 2 and May 3, 2022, as public holidays. According to two separate statements issued by the Ministry, 1st May 2022, which marks May Day or Workers Day, is a Statutory Public Holiday.
Given that the holiday falls on a weekend, Monday, May 2nd, will be used to observe the day. The May 3rd holiday is to mark Eid-ul-Fitr.
Eid is celebrated after Ramadan by Muslims in Ghana and across the world. Tuesday, May 3rd, is, therefore, a Statutory Public Holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country.
