The Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) is set to reveal its verdict on the much-anticipated Wilfred Kwaku Osei (Palmer) versus Ghana Football Association (GFA) case on Tuesday, 4th August 2020.
The judgement was initially set for 17th July 2020 but was postponed to 4th August 2020 by CAS in accordance with Article R59 of the Code of Sports-related Arbitration.
Palmer has been seeking justice at CAS for the past 11 months ever since he was disqualified (on two counts which include the failure to pay transfer commission to the FA as well as failing an integrity test) by the FIFA appointed Normalisation Committee (NC) from running in the 2019 GFA Presidential elections.
The Tema Youth President had appealed the decision to disqualify him from the elections but it was swiftly rejected which led to him later filing an appeal against the decision to the highest court in sports, CAS.
Ahead of the verdict tomorrow, Palmer released a statement on social media sharing a bible quotation from 2 Timothy 4:7 KJV which states “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
Should Palmer win the case, as part of the relieves he’s seeking, the results of the last GFA Presidential elections will be declared null and void for a fresh election to be held.
