Dear Marcus,

As promised, just to inform you that the Board is still discussing the
issues you have raised in your email, viz-a-viz the position of the
Board as communicated to the Community in my email of 25/11/2014.

Regrettably, I have been on the road, on my way back home hence not
able to moderate/participate in the discussions as I would have wanted.

I definitely will get back to you and other interested members.

Thanks and Regards ...

Sunday Folayan.
Chair, AFRINIC Board
