FIFA took the best decision at the right time – Palmer

Executive committee member of the under fire Ghana Football Association, Wilfred Osei has revealed FIFA’s letter to the government of Ghana is a set in the right direction to restore football in the country.

The world football governing body, FIFA has written to the government of Ghana to withdraw its petition to liquidate the assets of the Ghana Football Association after they were granted an injunction on the activities of the association.

“I was very excited when I saw the letter from FIFA because it reechoes what I have always stood for. Government has no right to liquidate the Association because we belong to a mother body which does not deal with government. It was wrong for government to petition the court in the first place”, Palmer said.

The accounting brain turn football administrator revealed the assets the government through the Attorney General seeks to liquidate were built by FIFA hence government has no right over them.

“FIFA has only recognized that liquidation is not the right way to go and they own most of the assets of the Association. I know FIFA will follow up with a road map for the way to go in restoring football”.
