Vice-president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mark Addo has indicated that the association never considered the Court of Arbitration for Sports’ (CAS) verdict for their case with Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer in choosing a date for the next Ordinary Congress.
The country’s football governing body in a letter to clubs last week noted that it has rescheduled the date for its 26th Ordinary Congress from August 27 to September 1, 2020.
Coincidentally, it is the same date the football community will be waiting with keen eyes for CAS’s verdict on the case between Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer and the GFA.
In an interview with Happy FM on the back of accusations from some stakeholders that the GFA intentionally set that date, Vice-president Mark Addo has stressed that it is not so.
“The CAS verdict never went into our consideration for the date of congress. It was all about the readiness of the documents so the CAS case was never considered”, he explained.
Mark Addo continued, “How sure are we that the verdict will come on that day? The work must continue”.
