Flashback: GFA's Vetting Committee grilled me but I survived – Osei Palmer

Briefly after his vetting, Osei Kwaku Palmer revealed that his encounter with the GFA’s election’s committee was hectic.

Unlike his fellow contenders who spent a maximum of one hour, Palmer was subjected to more than two hours of grilling.

Speaking to the press after the vetting, Palmer disclosed that he was impressed with his performance before the committee.

“Wow, they push me but I will say it went well. I was able to give explanations to some of the questions raised and I am most grateful. The Almighty had me prepared for most of the issues that they raised.”

Palmer’s answers appeared not to have met the expectations of the committee who disqualified him from contesting the elections.

Palmer appealed the ruling but was turned down which prompted a suit at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

CAS will deliver its verdict on the case tomorrow
