AFRINIC cannot make operators do what they don't want to do.

If an operator is unwilling to deploy IPv6, even though they've been
issued an IPv6 allocation by AFRINIC, AFRINIC cannot do much about that.

There has always been independence between the RIR operations and the
LIR operations. This is unlikely to change.

The AFRINIC membership could draft policies that "encourage" IPv6
deployment, but ultimately, your network, your rules.
