President of Tema Youth Sporting Club, Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer says he has welcomed the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) decision to dismiss his case against the Ghana Football Association (GFA) in good faith.
The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) in their release on Wednesday 2nd September 2020, ruled that the decision of the GFA Elections Committee to disqualify Wilfred Kweku Osei, from the 2019 GFA Election is legitimate.
The ruling means Mr. Kurt ES Okraku will continue to enjoy his position as President of the country’s football governing body.
The former Black Stars management committee chairman was contesting the legitimacy of the current leadership of the FA at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.
Palmer found guilty of breaking Ghana FA’s codes and was thus disqualified from contesting the Presidential seat, a position which was won by Kurt Okraku on 25th October 2020 in Accra.
Reacting to the verdict, Palmer in a statement said, “I am gratified by the fact that, this long legal tussle has finally come to an end”
“Even though I have issues against the main grounds for the delivery of the final verdict, I have no other alternative than to accept it in good faith and move on in life. At the end of the day, it is victory for Ghana Football.
”It is my prayer that we all continue to pool our resources to move Ghana football forward to reach the desired heights that we all wish for” he concluded.
