Tema Youth owner Osei Palmer no longer interested in becoming GFA president


Ghanaian side Tema Youth FC owner, Winfred Osei Kwaku Palmer says he’s not interested in the upcoming 2023 Ghana Football Association elections in October as GFA presidential hopeful.


According to the experienced Football administrator who worked under Kwesi Nyantakyi, he’s not given it a thought and subsequently not interested in the the race to become the president of the Association.

After he was disqualified from contesting the 2019 GFA presidential elections by the then Vetting Committee chaired by Mr Frank Davies Esq, Palmer was expected to make a big return to contest for the seat but has surprisingly opted out of the race.

In an interview with graphic sports, the Veteran Football administrator says he’s not going to make a comeback to contest for the position.

“I’m feeling better now but as for the GFA elections, I have not given it a thought yet,” he affirmed.

He was a serious contender for the position before his appeal for a stay of execution of the GFA presidential election at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) until the determination of the case was dismissed, paving the way for the election, which was eventually won by Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku in 2019.

Despite his illustrious career in football administrator and his experience, the president and owner of the club has decided to not involve himself in the elections for the Ghana Football Association presidential elections this October.
