The future of Ghana Football Association boss Kurt Okraku could be thrown wide open if Wilfred Osei Kweku "Palmer" wins his landmark case against the association at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

If Palmer's reliefs are granted by the world sport court on Friday, July 17, it will essentially collapse the 10-month presidency of the former Dreams FC Executive chairman.

Kurt Okraku won a sweet victory in the presidential election back in October last year after a rigorous campaign.

But his young administration could be scuttled if Palmer becomes successful at the global tribunal.

The Ghana Football Association boss could face another bout of a laborious re-election bid if the association losses the case at CAS.

However, these are ifs and buts with the much-anticipated verdict expected to put to bed the long-winding battle that has rocked the GFA since Mr. Okraku assumed the top position.

Palmer dragged the defunct normalization committee to CAS for an unfair and "calculated" disqualification from the presidential race.

The verdict has a far-reaching implication for both parties with CAS set to announce the ruling on Friday, July 17.

There are two things likely to happen - CAS to throw out the case and allow the status quo to remain or order for a re-run of the election if it was deemed the plaintiff was unfairly disqualified from the race.

These are frenetic times for the followers of both disqualified aspirant Wilfred Osei Kweku and current FA boss Kurt Okraku.
