Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) has dismissed Wilfred Kwaku Osei's case against the Ghana Football Association.

Wilfred Kwaku Osei affectionately called "Palmer" dragged the Ghana Football Association to Swiss court over what he deemed unfair disqualification from contesting the 2019 GFA presidential election which Kurt Okraku won.
