Thanks for your response Chair, it's indeed a fact that the call for GC was
made at Djibouti and its a good thing that the board has started acting on
it after the second call/reminder in Tunis and I thank the board for that.

Based on the discussion on this topic so far, I think it would be best to
avoid referencing the past especially when it does not positively help
improve the present/future. Coincidentally both Badru and Sunday occupied
the board leadership position in the last few years, so one could arguably
say none of them is vindicated on this subject. ;-). However,I don't think
it should only be about the Chair (or Vice-Chair) but rather about the
entire board acting up and I must recognise that there is has been
progress/improvements (with credits to the community as well, for not
relenting in their effort to keep the board on her feet)

That said, all the board members should start thinking ahead of the
community on issues by providing details that is known to be of global norm
so the community won't have to be asking/directing the board. I also
encourage all board members to make the work of their spokesperson (Chair)
easier by doing the actual work as really, any accusation/challenge posed
to the chair is actually to the entire board members; it's a responsibility
for all and not just the leadership!
