Before this yeat Kurt Okraku, President of the Ghana Football Affiliation was certain that the CAS situation involving the FA and Tema Youth boss Wilfred Kweku Osei will not be a watershed moment for Ghana soccer as some sought to potray.
Speaking to GhanaWeb in Could this 12 months, Kurt explained he does not get rid of slumber in excess of the scenario.
Talking on GhanaWeb’s Sporting activities Verify plan, Kurt stated that he is geared up for any ruling.
“It’s a scenario involving Palmer and the affiliation and it is what it is. If CAS provides a ruling, we’ll go by the ruling. Once again you won’t be able to transform today’s date. When the sea turns into rough, fishes really do not gee”. He stated.
And the latest ruling by CAS which offers victory to the Ghana Soccer Association appear to have vindicated the stance of Kurt all together.
Palmer was seeking redress from the Courtroom of Arbitration for Sports immediately after he was barred from the contesting very last year’s GFA elections by the Normalization Committee.

Palmer was praying CAS to annul the GFA elections and organize a contemporary a single.
