The vigil, scheduled to commence at 4pm today is in protest against the erratic power outages in the country.
Lead organizer of the vigil, actress Yvonne Nelson says the peaceful, non-partisan vigil is to impress upon government to act swiftly to solve the power crisis challenging the county.
As at 2pm Saturday afternoon, over 100 police officers including armed personnel drawn from various units of the Ghana Police Service were stationed close to the Legon Police station, opposite the University of Ghana’s old main gate.
Some armored cars can also be sighted at the venue.
The vigil is expected to draw several hundreds of Ghanaians and some celebrities.
