Prempeh has been robbed. Time and over again, Prof has proven to be difficult with Prempeh contestants over the years. Not one, not two and not three, But we will always show up and make the school proud.

PJ could have won the contest from the last riddle.

@1street_light shared:

An El Classico. A tight contest. A derby contest between Prepeh and Opoku Ware with a foreigner from the East. A contest to separate the boys from the men. From Santasi to KNUST, 13km from home, the Akatakyie narrowly leaps into the finals. All hail Opoku Ware School.
