How are the ICANN processes included or considered in the Abuja Protocol? 
Was ICANN as a global policy body represented at the Abuja Summit? 
Africa is not an island therefore whatever is decided which involves global operations should consider a wider representation and in that case ICANN as A global Co-orperation not by individuals who serve in ICANN constituents. Thats why maybe the CEO was invited to Dubai not as an individual who works for ICANN.....

I presume that my thinking is clear now - no blind folding anyone.

The AU/AUC claims to perate under a mandate given to it by a Council of
Ministers in Abhuja (2010?). I have no doubt that this is true and if so
makes this absolutely clearly the "relevant
governments and public authorities" given that individual
government have warned early against the DCA bid and more
than 60% of individual government have endorsed the Uniforum
