Dear members and the Community,

Over the last few days, some allegations have been made that are serious 
and by very nature threaten to further divide this community and 
represent a threat to the AfriNIC organization.

I believe the unity of the community is as important as the sanctity of 
the Board, and it is my responsibility to ensure none is compromised 

While I categorically deny any claims of any harassment levied at me, 
and believe these allegations are entirely spurious, I do acknowledge 
that I shared a chat (with the best intentions) which should have been 
treated with more caution, no matter how good the intention was.

It is my responsibility to step down as Chair, pending the conclusion of 
the investigations on the harassment claims.

May I most respectfully request that we await the independent 
investigation that the Board has initiated, and be patient, so that the 
community can come out of this strongest. I remain committed as a member 
of the community.

I have prior to now, communicated my decision to my colleagues on the Board.

I look forward to being allowed to defend myself, and justice being 
served for all, on the matter.

With Kind Regards ....

Sunday Folayan.
