Spokesperson of Tema Youth bankroller Mr. Wilfred Kwaku Osei, Ebo Appiah has confirmed that the embattled football administrator has declined from his appointment onto the Ad-Hoc Compensation Committee.
The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on Wednesday, in the exercise of the powers prescribed under Article 42(2) of the Statutes 2019 appointed an Ad-Hoc Compensation Committee.
The Committee is chaired by Frederick Nana Kweku Moore, the Chief Executive Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club with Wilfred Kwaku Osei, President of Tema Youth Sporting Club and Delali Eric Senaye, Chief Executive Officer of Inter Allies Football Club also named on the board.
However, Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer, who dragged the Ghana Football Association to the Court of Arbitration for Sports over his disqualification in last year’s GFA presidential elections, has since declined on the role given him which according to his spokesperson, Ebo Appiah, he declined due to several consultations which cannot be disclosed but regards it as personal reasons.
“We will publicly release a statement on this soon,” he told Kumasi FM.
The mandate of the Committee, as provided under Article 42(2) of the GFA Statutes 2019, is to propose to the GFA Congress the remuneration of members of the Executive Council.
Currently, the GFA has been using the sitting allowance approved by the previous Executive Committee before the coming into office of the Normalization Committee.
