Ghana would hold presidential and parliamentary elections in December 2020, in a vote that will be a very close contest between Akufo-Addo’s New Patriotic Party and former President, John Mahama of the main opposition National Democratic Congress.
President Akufo-Addo unseated Mahama in a 2016 election. Mahama, who succeeded his deceased predecessor in 2012 and defeated Akufo-Addo in an election later that year, maintaining the West African country’s record of fiercely contested but peaceful elections.
However, over the past years, political vigilantism has been the pitfall of Ghana’s democracy with both political parties trading accusations to who form the vigilante groups, creating political tensions and divisions in a country described by many as the oasis of peace and stability.

As part of the effort   to re-establish Ghana, as one of the beacons of democracy in Africa   . And   positively reflect on the continent for similar violence-free events elsewhere in Africa. The sports arm of the Humanity Magazine,  Football For Humanity, would organize  the No-To-Vigilantism Peace Match between Accra Zongo and  Kumasi Zongo at  Accra Sports Stadium on 14th June,2020.
The organization would use   the country’s biggest platform to create the awareness and prevention of political vigilantism, which is gradually eating into the fabric of the Zongo communities and youth of Ghana. The program is geared towards    making the up-coming 2020 general election, a memorable political event in Ghana .
The ambassadors where keen to embrace the peace initiative at the 44th anniversary celebration of Angola’s Independence Day in Accra. The program, was well   orchestrated by the leader  of the occasion, Mr. Augusto Da Silva Cunha, the Angolan Ambassador to Ghana, who welcomed the youth of the political parties in a unity gesture.
The Namibian high commissioner to Ghana, Mr. Charles B.Josob praised the upcoming event by saying ‘we are for world unity ‘.  Ms. Lulu Xingwana, The South African High commissioner to Ghana, actively displayed the No-to-vigilantism jersey with the youth of new patriotic party and National Democratic Congress.
