Former Division One League Board Chairman, Lawyer Ntow Fianko has called to boycott the upcoming Congress which coincides with the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) final ruling on the case between the Ghana Football Association and Wilfred Osei Kwaku.

The GFA led by Kurt Okraku has set September 1 for its ordinary Congress whilst CAS is also expected to release its verdict on the case between the GFA and Osei Palmer on that same day.

The much-anticipated ruling has been postponed twice. The ruling can change the dynamics of football in the country.

According to Ntow Fianko, the date set for Congress should be changed as there will be tension and anxiety on that fateful day as football people awaits the outcome of the verdict.

“Can’t we get any other date apart from 1 September for the congress?” he quizzed on Happy FM.

“If we at Congress everybody will be in a panic mood. We should all wait for the CAS ruling so we know our stand before we go to Congress.

“People will be too anxious to know the outcome of the verdict. We cannot be waiting for the CAS verdict on the day of Congress. That date is a serious day because that is the day will know the fate of Ghana football.

The renowned lawyer also urged all the clubs to reject the date set by the GFA for the Congress.

“The clubs should say no to the date set by the GFA for Congress. The Congress can be postponed to a later date an I urge the clubs to say no to the new date," he added.

Osei Kweku Palmer dragged the Ghana FA to the Swiss-based court following his disqualification from the 2019 Ghana Football Association presidential elections on the grounds of failing to pay 10 per cent of a player he transferred.

The respected football administrator termed his disqualification as 'unfair'.
