Ghana Football Association (GFA) disqualified presidential candidate, Wilfred Osei Palmer has taken a swipe at Kurt Okraku for calling on the government to come to their aid in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Ghana FA has suspended football activities indefinitely following the directives by president to suspend all social gathering.

Following government decision to help the needy and the vulnerable, the FA demanded for a meeting for the government to help the financial burden on the clubs.

However, the president of the Tema Youth FA believes the decision of the president was wrong since there is already a burden on government.

“I was surprised that Kurt Okraku went to government to borrow money for the clubs," he told Asempa FM.

For me I would have asked government to remove the 17.5% VAT they let us pay for gate proceeds for about two years so that the cost of football will be low and we will be able to generate revenue.

"We all need to meet and generate a policy document because that is what the government understands.”
