Ghana Football Association vice president Mark Addo says the Executive Council did not consider the pending Court Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling on the case involving the GFA and Wilfred Kwaku Osei Palmer when choosing the Congress date.
The GFA last week announced that they have rescheduled the date for its 26th Ordinary Congress to September.
In a letter signed by GFA General Secretary, Prosper Harrison Addo, said Congress will now take place on September 1 and it will be held at the GFA Technical Centre (Ghanaman Soccer Centre of Excellence, Prampram).
The new date for Congress coincides with the date the CAS will be giving its verdict on the case between Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer and the GFA.
Many club administrators have expressed concern over GFA’s new date for Congress with former board chairman of the National Division One League, Lawyer Ntow Fianko calling on clubs to oppose the date for GFA’s 26th Ordinary Congress.
However, Mark Addo has noted that the country’s governing football body didn’t factor the CAS ruling in choosing a date Congress.
“The CAS verdict never went into our consideration for the date of the congress. It was all about the readiness of the documents so the CAS case was never considered.
“How sure are we that the verdict will come on that day? The work must continue”, the Ghana FA veep said.
