Ghana Declares August 4 Public Holiday to Mark Founders’ Day (News Central TV)

The Government of Ghana has announced Thursday, August 4, as a Statutory Public Holiday.

A statement issued by the Ministry of Interior said the holiday is to mark Founders’ Day.

The Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, said “The general public is hereby informed that Thursday, 4th August, 2022 which marks Founders’ Day, is a Statutory Public Holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country.”

Founders’ Day is a national public holiday observed to commemorate the contributions of all the people, notably the “Big Six” who led the struggle for Ghana’s independence.

The Big Six were six leaders of the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC), one of the leading political parties in the British colony of the Gold Coast, known after independence as Ghana. They were detained by the colonial authorities in 1948 following disturbances that led to the killing of three World War II veterans. They are pictured on the front of the Ghana cedi notes.
