Dear all,

As you probably know now, my application for a second term on the 
ICANN board was not accepted by the NomCom, as indicated in its recent 
announcement of selections (http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-05aug11-en.htm).  So my term on the board ends this Oct. at the Dakar, Senegal, ICANN 

So let me say a big "Thanks!!" to all of you, the African ICANN community for your support during my time on the ICANN board.  It's been wonderful working with all of you, and I hope we continue working to ensure that the Internet continues to benefit our people, and that we continue to work actively with the global ICANN community for an Internet that benefits all of humanity, and not just the privileged few.

I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate NomCom's new appointees from Africa:  Lanre Ajayi from Nigeria (GNSO Council), and Titi Akinsanmi from Nigeria (ALAC).  I urge you to provide them all the support they need to effectively discharge their duties in their new positions.

Congratulations also to our brother Carlton Samuels and the rest of the NomCom appointees, including Dr.Steve Crocker, our board Chairman. I wish them all, the 
board, ICANN, and the entire community all the very best in the future!

Again, thanks for everything!
