Palmer Insists There Has Been No Change In Ghana Football Under Kurt Okraku
The owner of Team Youth Football Club, Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer says there have been no changes in Ghana football since Kurt Edwin Simeone Okraku took over as the president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Mr. Okraku and his Executive Council have been running the affairs of football in the country for the past 6 months after enjoying triumph in elections conducted in October 2019.
Speaking to Asempa FM on the differences the new administration has been able to make, Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer says nothing has changed.
“I must say it has been quite unfortunate but, to put it bluntly, nothing has changed [Kurt Okraku’s administration]”, the Tema Youth bankroller stressed.
He further shared, “We would have wished for more reforms to take place. In our last congress, it was asked if there are major reforms in place, nothing has changed. An administrator, I cannot release his name, said he was tired of running his club. Another club approached a wealthy man for support but that man turned them down immediately. Some people are selling their land to play matches. For how long will this continue?”.
Palmer was one of 8 aspirants who picked forms to contest for the GFA presidential position. He was however disqualified after vetting for a case involving the transfer of Joseph Paintsil.
He sent the case to CAS subsequently and has since been fighting for justice as he argues that his disqualification was unfair.
