The National Farmers’ Day is normally celebrated on the first Friday of December every year but it is observed in November in election years.
The Minister of Interior, Ambrose Dery declares that although the National Farmers’ Day will be observed on Friday, November 6, 2020, it won’t be a public holiday.
According to the Sector Minister, Friday, December 4, 2020, which marks Farmers Day, still stands as the date for the Statutory Public Holiday and would be observed as such throughout the country.
The announcement from the Interior Ministry is shown below:
The generic public is hereby informed that Friday, 6th November 2020 is not a Public Holiday even though the National Farmers’ Day will be observed on that day.
However, Friday, 4th December 2020, which marks Farmers Day, remains a Statutory Public Holiday and would be observed as such throughout the country.
