Kurt Okraku has changed nothing since becoming president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), according to disqualified GFA presidential candidate, Wilfred Osei Kwaku. Osei Kwaku, who is popularly known as Palmer, passed the verdict on Asempa FM, Thursday, in his first radio interview since his disqualification.
Palmer said Kurt Okraku-led administration has done little or nothing to change the fortunes of football in the country. His expectations of more reforms taking place have not been met.
“I must say it has been quite unfortunate but, to put it bluntly, nothing has changed [under Kurt Okraku’s administration]. We would have wished for more reforms to take place,” Palmer said. He added; “In our last congress, it was asked if there are major reforms in place, nothing has changed. An administrator, I cannot release his name, said he was tired of running his club. Another club approached a wealthy man for support but that man turned them down immediately. Some people are selling their land to play matches. For how long will this continue?”
Palmer was prevented from contesting the presidential elections in October last year which Kurt Okraku won. The Normalisation Committee who acted as Elections Committee disqualified Palmer on the grounds of failing to pass integrity check. He is currently challenging the decision at Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)
