Former Western Regional Football Association chairman, Kojo Yankah has challenged the Ghana Football Association date for the 26th ordinary congress.

The country's football governing body has fixed September 1 for Congress.

The date is currently under scrutiny since the Court of Arbitration for Sports [CAS] will announce the ruling on the case between Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer and the Ghana Football Association [GFA] on the same day.

According to Mr Yankah, it would have been prudent to schedule the congress two days before or after the ruling of CAS.

"I don't agree with the date scheduled for the congress," he told Asempa FM.

"Ordinarily, I was thinking it will start two days or two days after the ruling of the CAS ruling.

"We are expecting the CAS verdict on September 1 and scheduled Congress on the same day, it is not helpful. We will not be focused because we will be expecting the ruling while we are all at Congress.

"I think the Executive Council must revisit their decision and do the right thing because the date is questionable for me."

Osei Palmer dragged the Ghana FA to the Swiss based court following the disqualification from the 2019 Ghana Football Association presidential race.

Meanwhile, Congress will take place at the Ghanaman Soccer of Excellence at Prampram on Tuesday, September 1 at 9:00am.
