Like everyone here, I believe that we share a common denominator and idea,
which is centered on the success, longevity and the continued functionality
of the AFRINIC. Hence, with the present condition and situation that the
RIR being AFRINIC is in financially, an assistance through the NRO RIR
Stability Fund would be an option to utilize until our internet registry
the AFRINIC RIR is stable and functional to the fullest. Thus, this concept
of “destruction” as regards to the AFRINIC should not be something we
should be thinking of and inferring at this point.
