I never saw the form and I even accosted the election committee chairman that it is improper for somebody to file in Accra when the elections are conducted in Cape Coast.”“It is also improper for somebody to go into an election not knowing the details of documents submitted by a candidate for that election. Roy is not a qualified candidate and for me he is not a worthy winner. We must maintain the sanctity of our regulations.”Doe then blamed the GFA’s Election Committee for his shocking defeat. “The process itself was flawed with all manner of irregularities. Oguaa United, a member of the association wrote to the GFA and the association never had the courtesy to respond to its letter.
