Ghanaian politician and actor John Dumelo has promised to fulfil his vow to walk barefoot backwards from the University of Ghana’s main gate to the premises of Presbyterian Boys Secondary School (PRESEC) Legon.
Dumelo had made the vow during the National Science and Maths Quiz, where he passionately supported his alma mater, Achimota School. He had pledged to undertake the lengthy trek if Achimota did not emerge victorious.
Unfortunately, Achimota lost to PRESEC in the competition, prompting calls on social media for Dumelo to fulfil his promise.
Responding to these calls, Dumelo commended PRESEC for their victory and affirmed his intention to “walk his talk.”
He also expressed his pride in Achimota School and Opoku Ware Senior High School (OWASS) for reaching the pinnacle of the competition.
Dumelo is scheduled to walk barefoot backwards from the UG main gate to the PRESEC gate on October 31, 2023, at 4 p.m.
I am a man of my words. I will be walking backwards barefoot from the UG main gate to Presec main gate Tommrow 31st Oct at 4pm. 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.…
