Friday Is Not A Holiday; Please Disregard Such Information - Oyibi Divisional Council Serves Notice

The Oyibi Divisional Council has issued a statement to the press, apologising for their earlier decision to declare Friday, September 30, as a mandatory holiday for residents in Oyibi.

The council is now urging Ghanaians, especially residents in Oyibi to disregard such earlier information.

This comes after a press statement was released to all residents in Oyibi urging them to observe Friday, 30th September as a public holiday in Oyibi. The statement directed all persons living on any part of the Oyibi Land to observe the day as part of the Oyibi Yam Festival.

"I wish to apologise to the entire citizens living in any part of Oyibi Community and the general public for releasing such a communique and I seek that such information should be disregarded. I am very sorry for any inconvenience caused," Enoch Alabi, secretary to the council reveals.

In Ghana, only the interior minister has the right to declare a day as a public holiday. No chief or government official has the right to declare a day as a holiday.
