As the Muslims are going to celebrate their Eid-Ul-Adha on Saturday 9th July 2022, the Minister of Interior has released a statement that says "The general public is hereby informed that Saturday, 9th July 2022 marks 'Eid-Ul-Adha' which is a Statutory Public Holiday."
"However 9th of July, 2022 falls on Saturday, and therefore, His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana has by an Executive Instrument (EI), and in accordance with section 2 of the Public Holidays and Commemorative Days Act, 2001 (601) declared Monday, 11th July, 2022 as a Public Holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country."
Ghanaians have reacted massively and given their thoughts on these.
"The Minister of Interior didn't have to declare it a public holiday. We naa we know. F
Ghanaians have already made their plans" Linda Scott commented.
Patience Nyinanse writes, "I thought the holiday will not be observed because of Russia and Ukraine war."

Looking at reactions from Ghanaians, you can see how happy some of them are but those without a job are not happy too because they think every day is a holiday for them.
