Kurt Okraku still GFA President as CAS dismisses Palmer’s case

The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) has ruled that the decision of the GFA Elections Committee to disqualify Wilfred Kweku Osei, affectionately called Osei Palmer from the 2019 GFA Election is valid.

This means  Kurt Okraku will stay on as the FA President with no re-election ordered.

The verdict was delivered wednesday morning after several postponements.

                                                                                                                                   

        Background

Palmer, president of Tema Youth FC, has been seeking justice at CAS for the past 10 months after he was disqualified by the erstwhile GFA Normalisation Committee (NC) from contesting the 2019 GFA presidential election.

He was mainly disqualified by the Vetting Committee for failing to pay a 10 per cent share of Joseph Paintsil’s 3 million Euros transfer fee from Ferencvaros of Hungary to Belgian side, Genk in 2018 to the GFA.

However, a dissatisfied Palmer filed an appeal against his disqualification which was dismissed by the three-member NC headed by Dr Kofi Amoah, compelling him to petition CAS on October 11, 2019 for redress.
