After losing a bet, Ghanaian actor John Dumelo kept his word and marched barefoot backward to Presbyterian Boys Senior High School in Legon.
The actor had publicly declared that he would go backward to the Presec campus if Presec, a prestigious high school, defeated his former school, Achimota School, in the 2023 National Science & Maths Quiz (NSMQ) final.
