Disqualified Ghana FA presidential aspirant Wilfred Osei Kwaku "Palmer" says he is yet to be offered an olive branch by Kurt Okraku since he became the president of the association.

It's unclear if the two men are at loggerheads but the Tema Youth boss has revealed that he has not been contacted by the current FA president since assuming office.

"People came into leadership base on a situation. My good friend Kurt Okraku came into power due a situation.

"Kurt has never called me. I have made overtures to his party members, but I have not heard from him.

"I am not concerned about GFA election. After election, no campaign. I don't think about that. The only thing I can do is to help if I am consulted. So collectively, we can all help push.

"Immediately after the election, they should have closed ranks. They did not open up. I have discussed with George, Nana Yaw and the rest and its same."

Palmer is fighting his disqualification from the presidential race in October 2019 at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
