In a release signed by the interior minister, Ambrose Dery, this year's farmers day will be celebrated on November 6, 2020 instead of the first Friday of December.

Felix Aggud said it is better to make December 7 a holiday.
So why don't we instead make 7th December a holiday

Why not send the 4th to 7th so that it will be a holiday. So we can all go vote.
