GFA Elections: We filed our appeal within the stipulated time- Wilfred Kwaku Osei

GFA Presidential hopeful, Wilfred Kwaku Osei, has strongly stated that his appeal to the Normalisation Committee over his disqualification from the FA elections was filed within the advertised period.

Osei was disqualified after the vetting and that was announced on Friday October 4 by the Normalisation Committee.

His disqualification was premised on breaching rules of payments to the FA in terms of player transfers and breaching rules of ethics for comments he made in relation to Ghana’s failure to qualify to the 2018 World Cup.

Per a statement released by Wilfred Osei on Tuesday, he filed his statement of appeal on Monday, October 7.

He added that he would file additional arguments as and when all the necessary information that he asked for was given to him.

The statement said that the Committee was yet to give him the record of the vetting proceedings and the report of the Vetting Committee and that, the Committee provided a pen drive containing an audio recording of the proceedings and that was given to him and his team after 5pm on Monday.

With the GFA Elections set to take place on October 25, it is expected that Osei and the Normalisation Committee will find a resolution that will satisfy all parties and ensure that the polls are conducted without incidents.
