Kurt Okraku is in cruise control of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) threw out Wilfred Osei Kwaku’s case against the federation on Wednesday.
The Swiss-based organisation dismissed all the issues raised by Palmer claiming he was unfairly disqualified from the race and slapped him with costs.
Palmer will also bear all the costs incurred by the GFA in fighting the case which will further thump his wallet after he paid the initial costs of the GFA for the case to be heard by the Swiss-based organisation.
The ruling from CAS puts to rest months of intense anxiety involving all the principal actors over the future of the leadership of the GFA.
It also puts into question the future of Palmer in football administration in Ghana as he might not be able to contest for any position within the GFA.
The global sports tribunal body announced the much-awaited verdict to bring to an end 11-month litigation which threatened to rock the administration of football in the West African nation.
Tema Youth president Wilfred Osei Kweku “Palmer” dragged the Ghana FA to the global tribunal following his disqualification from the presidential race back in October 2019.
Palmer was seeking to overturn last year’s Ghana FA Presidential election after being disqualified claiming he was unfairly targeted for disqualification.
The global sports tribunal body announced the verdict to bring to an end 10-month litigation which has far-reaching implication for the administration of football in the West African nation.
