Following Presbyterian Boys Secondary School’s (PRESEC Legon’s) success in the 2023 National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ), actor and politician John Dumelo has promised to walk barefoot to the school.
After first making this commitment, Dumelo has now confirmed the timing of this remarkable achievement in response to requests from social media users.
At the recently concluded competition, Presec Legon triumphed, earning their eighth NSMQ trophy and a consecutive victory.
On October 22, John Dumelo, an Akora and former student of Achimota, declared that he would trek barefoot from Ayawaso West Wuogon to the Preset premises in the event that Presec defeated Achimota Senior High School in the NSMQ.
As the pressure on him increased, John Dumelo resorted to Twitter to reaffirm that he would keep his word. On October 31, 2023, at 4 PM, he promised to walk barefoot from the University of Ghana main gate to the Presec main, proving that he is a man of his word.
A Dumelo tweet sighted by 1Family Radio read, “I am a man of my words. I will be walking backwards barefoot from the UG main gate to the Presec main gate tomorrow, October 31st, at 4 p.m.
“I want to congratulate Presec for winning the #NSMQGrandFinale. I am wholeheartedly proud of my Achimota school and also OWASS. I will walk the talk,’’ he added.
