Wilfred Kwaku Osei, popularly known as Palmer has been disqualified from the Ghana Football Association presidential race.
The Normalisation Committee acting as the Elections Committee after recommendations from the Vetting Committee published the names of the qualified candidates with only Palmer missing from the list of confirmed presidential hopefuls.
The list has thus reduced to six with the following passed; Amanda Clinton, George Ankoma Mensah, Nana Yaw Amponsah, Kurt Okraku, George Afriyie and Frederick Pappoe.
Palmer was considered as one of the frontrunners for the top position but it appears that he failed the integrity test after appearing before the Vetting Committee.
The news comes two days after he launched his policy document in Accra, promising to raise a staggering $90.3m to fund the association if given the nod.
For the Executive Council members, all candidates who appeared before the Committee qualified. Randy Abbey, Kotoko CEO George Amoako, Hearts of Oak CEO Frederick Moore all cleared to contest the elections.
But Alhaji Fuseini Mahama and Roy Arthur have been disqualified from contesting the Regional Football Association chairperson positions.
The elections have been scheduled for October 25.
