The Executive board chairman of Tema Youth Football Club, Wilfred Kwaku Osei Palmer has indicated that his disqualification from contesting the Ghana Football Association (GFA) presidential election was orchestrated by a prominent and respectable person in the football circle.
In the run-up to the GFA presidential elections in 2019, the owner of the Division One League club was disqualified for failing to follow through with a financial obligation required after every player sale.
Speaking to Accra-based Angel FM in an interview on Tuesday night, Wilfred Kwaku Osei Palmer has lifted the lid on who was behind his disqualification.
Though he refused to give out the name, the football administrator shared that the person is very much respected in the football circles.
“My disqualification from the GFA presidential election was a grand designed to take me out.
“I know those who wrote the report to disqualify me. It was not from any member of the Normalization Committee. A very active and respectable person in the football fraternity altered the document”, Palmer said.
He further rubbished rumors suggesting that his disqualification was politically motivated.
