The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has revealed it would restore July 1 as a public holiday if it returns to power after the 2020 elections.
This follows the scraping of the holiday, which signifies the attainment of Ghana’s republican status, by the Akufo-Addo administration.
YEN.com.gh understands that the day is now marked as commemorative day.
“The NDC would want to assure all Ghanaians living everywhere that upon its assumption of office in January 2021, Republic Day will be accorded full recognition as one of the more important national days in our history,” director of communications, Kakra Essamuah, said in a statement.
In a statement released on the 59th anniversary of the attainment of republican status, NDC saluted all Ghanaians on the occasions of the anniversary.
It added that it earlier criticised President Akufo-Addo’s attempt to rewrite Ghana’s history by downplaying the role of genuine patriots.
Per a Starrfm.com.gh report, the statement went on to say the president has decided to place his family and clan above everything else.
The NDC therefore took the opportunity to assure all Ghanaians that the Republic Day would be accorded its full status upon its assumption of office in January 2021.
