Ghana's heartbreak could be confirmed later on Saturday when Egypt take on Congo.
The result left Cranes second in Group E with eight points, one below leaders Egypt who have a game in hand against Congo Brazzaville tomorrow. Despite showing a great performance during the game, Ghana players were not able to score a single goal.
The GFA says it is questioning the disallowed 93rd-minute goal and penalty, as well as other decisions by the officials.
The Black Stars - third in Group E going into the match in Kampala - needed a win to keep their hopes alive of making the finals in Russian Federation.
"The GFA respectfully asked Federation Internationale de Football Association to consider the possibility of a replay in order to serve the ends of justice without fear or favour", the statement added.
