The Member of Parliament for Odododiodio constituency in the Greater Accra Region wants the Republic Day Holiday which falls on July 1 to be restored.

The Member of Parliament for Odododiodio constituency in the Greater Accra Region wants the Republic Day Holiday which falls on July 1 to be restored.

The day which used to be a public holiday is now commemorative following President Akufo-Addo assenting to the Public Holidays (Amendment) Act 2019.

Speaking to this, during a panel discussion on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Nii Lante said, "if parliament was doing their work well without political influence, this (the amendment) would not have passed. The significance of July 1st cannot be lost on us. The politics in Parliament is sometimes too much. We can do something about it and restore 1st July as a statutory holiday."
