The moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Right Rev. Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante, has expressed worry over the number of public holidays in Ghana.
Per a report from Graphic.com.gh, Prof. Mante explained that the situation is a setback to Ghana’s development.
He went on to say Ghana, like many other African countries, suffered from a huge development gap, hence the need for the state to use more of its time productively to facilitate economic development.

Prof. Mante therefore underscored the need for the state to reduce the number of public holidays observed in the country.
He added that there was the need to put in place adequate supervision in the various institutions to ensure that workers used their time judiciously and at optimum.
"We are in a serious economic bondage. Studies have shown that 19 out of the 20 poorest countries in the world are in Africa. We should rather be working than any other country," he stated.
