Condemned to perpetual disqualification as CAS delivers heavy ‘punch’ on the future of Osei Kweku Palmer’s Ghana FA Presidential ambitions

The court for Arbitration for Sports has brought finality to the discussions on the future of the Ghana FA presidency after it dismissed all the four reliefs sought for by the President of the Tema Youth Football club, Mr Osei Kweku Palmer.

The former Ghana FA executive committee member asked the Sports Appellate body to annul the elections of the Ghana FA of October 2019, and allow for fresh elecruons to include his candidacy.

The Ghana FA elections committee under thw Normalization committee disqualified Mr Palmer on two grounds insisting he lacked integrity to lead the Association

Two reasons were given for his disqualification –

Failure of his club, Tema Youth, to pay a 10% fee to the GFA on the transfer of two players – Gabriel Laveh ($15,000) and Joseph Painstil (€300,000). According to the Vetting Committee, this action was in flagrant violation of the GFA Regulations [Article 33 (5) (C)] and a person seeking to govern an institution cannot be seen to be disregarding that very institutions’ rules and regulations.

Hos comments on Radio where he suggested that the Black Stars of Ghana failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup because the country did not make a budget available for unclassified payments to match officials. The Committee held that Palmer had been found guilty by a judicial body of the GFA (Ethics Committee) for the comments and say the remarks prove Palmer lacks moral integrity to hold the position of GFA President.

The verdict if interpreted in future Ghana FA elections will mean the Two Time executive council member will no longer be eligible for any of the Association’s top positions.

The Football Association must localize the decision of the CAS to all its future elections to enhance the integrity of the Association.
