Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) has dismissed Tema Youth President Wilfred Kwaku Osei’s case against the Ghana Football Association.
The former Black Stars management committee chairman had dragged the Ghana Football Association to Swiss court over what he deemed unfair disqualification from contesting the 2019 GFA presidential election held on 25th October 2019.
In the appeal case file, Palmer wanted the GFA elections annulled and his candidacy reinstated for fresh elections to be held.
However, in a letter addressed to both parties, and signed by the President of the Panel, Michele Bernasconi, CAS dismissed his case and backed the decision of the GFA to disqualify Palmer from contesting the election.
Below is the statement released by CAS on the ruling:
