GFA Elections: Osei Palmer appeals disqualification

Wilfred Kwaku Osei Palmer was the only presidential hopeful disqualified

Disqualified GFA presidential hopeful Wilfred Kwaku Osei Palmer has served notice he will appeal the decision by the elections committee to disqualify him.

The committee, acted by the Normalisation Committee, on Friday announced the qualified and disqualified candidates for the various elections.

The Tema Youth FC bank roller was among three candidates disqualified with reasons not made known.

A few hours later, the former chairman of the Black Stars Management Committee said the committee cited a breach of Article 33(5) of the GFA General Regulations to disqualify him.

A decision by the Ethics Committee on December 13, 2017 was also cited as reason for his disqualification.

“First of all, I wish to thank the vetting committee and the Normalisation Committee for the work done so far and to tell all my loved ones to keep calm,” he said in a statement.

“I shall in the coming days file an appeal concerning the decision.”

He has denied committing the infractions he is being accused of.

The presidential elections of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is scheduled for Friday, October 25.
