The Lawyer for the Ghana Football Association(GFA), Naa Odoforley has revealed that disqualified Wilfred Kwaku Osei Palmer can contest in the next election of the federation although his suit against the FA was dismissed the Switzerland-based football tribunal.
The Court of Arbitration for Sports(CAS) on Wednesday threw away Palmer’s suit against the Ghana FA. The controversial football administrator felt he was unfairly disqualified from contesting in the 2019 presidential election of the GFA.
According to the CAS ruling, the Electoral Committee’s decision was in the right direction.
Although Palmer’s case was dismissed, Naa Odoforley who served on the Normalisation Committee has hinted that the Tema Youth owner had what it takes to go in for the position again if he wishes.
“There’s no reason why he can’t stand in the next elections, as for that one I will say it for free, ” she said on Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM.
“One thing is that every candidate will have to pass integrity test so this time when the answer is Yes, he should tick Yes and explain and that’s it and if he’s in breach of any of the articles or regulations of the FA, he should go and make sure that he has cleared those breaches and he will be free.”
Wilfred Kwaku Osei Palmer was ousted from the race for breaking the association’s code of conduct.
