A former Black Stars administration committee chairman, Wilfred Kwaku Osei, affectionately referred to as Palmer has accused the Kurt Okraku administration of partaking in unlawful offers at the FA, citing the Mara sponsorship for the senior national staff as an instance.

According to him, the football governing body’s choice to signal an settlement with a cryptocurrency company, Mara, to sponsor the senior national staff forward of the World Cup in Qatar is a testomony of their illegalities.

“You go and sign an illegality and you say you have signed a sponsorship; it is an illegality. SEC has pronounced, Bank of Ghana’s position on cryptocurrency is clear, why would you do that? That every sponsorship that is coming to the FA, there is a question mark on it.

“The laws of Ghana are clear on certain things, so why would engage in such?”

He added that, there are a number of offers signed by Mr Okraku and his staff which exhibits that, they don’t seem to be forthright with their members and that’s an indication of a foul leader.

“The same happened to the Macron deal, then it metamorphosed into Tempo. Some of us knew for a fact that we were buying our own balls, the FA was using our money to buy balls for us yet, they said Macron was giving us balls, how is it possible?

“Before you sign a deal, proper due diligence is required. The quality of a leader is dependent on his decision, and those surrounding him. You are managing people so if you have bad people following you, the kind of decision or information that you give will show.
