I wasn't even aware your term was up! Sad to know you're leaving the ICANN
Board, but good to know you'll now be more free to contribute to ICANN
processes from the African Internet community without having to get BoredJ!


I welcome you back to the bigger Internet community.

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 meeting.


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!
