Wilfred Osei Palmer

After 10 months of litigation, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will deliver its verdict on the case involving Wilfred Osei Kwaku, popularly known as Palmer and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) ) on Tuesday, August 4.

And ahead of the verdict, Palmer remains hopeful of victory as he shared a bible quotation, affirming his belief in God on his official Twitter page, Monday. The message was accompanied by hashtag #GodHasTheFinalSay.

The verdict supposed to be delivered July 17 was postponed to this month. CAS said their decision was in pursuant to Article R59 of the Code of Sports-related Arbitration.

The Tema Youth owner dragged GFA to CAS following his ‘unfair’ disqualification from contesting the 2019 GFA Presidential elections.

Palmer was disqualified by the now-defunct Normalisation Committee / Elections Committee from contesting the elections.

He was disqualified on two grounds: One was his failure to pay the 10% mandatory fee to the GFA following the transfer of his player Joseph Paintsil to Belgian side KRC Genk.

If Palmer wins the case, as part of the relieves he’s seeking, the results of the last FA presidential elections will be declared null and void for a fresh election to be held.

Also, if CAS throws out Palmer’s case, Kurt Okraku will continue to serve his four-year term as GFA President which started in October 2019.
