George Afriyie has bragged that Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer will not win the Ghana Football Association presidential seat even if he manages to overturn the decision to be disqualified from the contest.

The Tema Youth Bankroller has been disqualified due to breaches of Article 33(5)(c) of the Ghana General Regulations, as well as getting on the wrong side of GFA ethical committee ruling in 2017.

He is currently fighting against the Normalisation Committee’s ruling at FIFA and CAS.

Speaking to Asempa FM, the Okyeman Planners owner says he will be happy for every one of the aspirants to be allowed to contest for the GFA seat. 

According to him, Palmer should forget any dream he has of becoming the next leader of the Ghana Football since the maximum votes he will get on the election day will not exceed 15 even if he is cleared to contest.

“Palmer will get 15 votes; maximum, if he’s cleared to contest,” George said.

As the date for the election draws closer many of the candidates have launched their manifesto which highlights their plans for Ghana football when given the nod.

However, George Afriyie insists his manifestos is the best amidst the lot.

“The delegates won’t votes for clueless people to come and lead our football. Some aspirants will not even get 10 votes if the election is to be held today”

”I have looked through all the other manifestos by my opponents; I can say mine is the best.”

The GFA presidential election is slated for October 25.
