Wilfried Osei Kwaku Palmer has hinted that he will appeal the Vetting Committee’s decision to disqualify him from the GFA presidential race, ABC News can report.
In a statement released on Friday in response to the vetting committee’s decision, the bankroller of Tema Youth Football Club acknowledged receipt of the Vetting Committee’s decision to disqualify him.
He averred that the committee’s decision to shut his GFA Presidency aspirations based on what they referred to as a breach of Article 35(5)(C) and decisions of the Ethics Committee on 13th December 2017 is unfortunate.
According to Palmer, he is innocent in all those cited cases hence the decision to disqualify him cannot be on the basis of those cases.
He, therefore, urged his supporters and the football community, in general, to remain calm as he is in the process of filing an appeal to contest the decision of the committee.
In the statement sighted by ABC News, Mr. Palmer said, ” I shall in the coming days file an appeal concerning the case. To the best of my knowledge, I Wilfred Osei Kwaku did not commit any infractions stated above.”
Two days prior to this announcement, the Tema Youth bankroller launched his policy document to convince delegates to vote for him in the elections, in anticipation of going through the Vetting process.
