FIFA was unfair to the GFA EXCO- Osei Palmer

Executive Committee Member (EXCO) of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Wilfred Osei Palmer says FIFA were unfair to the EXCO after the football governing body made a decision to replace them with a normalization committee.

Palmer who has been one of the maverick members of the EXCO say's FIFA should have listened to their side of the issue before making a decision to replace them with a normalization committee.

FIFA after a meeting with the government of Ghana outlined several steps to resolve the current Football crisis and one of the decisions they made was to take steps to form a normalization committee to replace the GFA EXCO.

"Let nobody prevent anybody from contributing to the reforms because we are all stakeholders"

There are a lot of loopholes in the (FIFA) communique. Everything was one-sided, It would have been fair if FIFA had listened to us," he spoke on Asempa FM's Sports show.

The Tema Youth owner added that he can contest to be a member of the next GFA EXCO if a new Congress is held.

"So far as Congress is going to vote, I can contest for any position".

The government is expected to withdraw their liquidation case against the GFA in the coming days
