[rpd] end of my term as co-chair

Dear AfriNIC Community,

Alsalam Alikom (السلام عليكم)

I would like to thanks the AFRINIC Community for giving me the opportunity to serve as PDWG Co-chair since the AfriNIC meeting held on November 2015. Since that, we engaged in fruitful discussions to further enhance the way AFRINIC manage Internet resources. Through those discussions, we sometimes reached consensus to move with the policy proposal forward to ratification, while for other proposals the community prefer to keep the status quo policies. We experienced particular circumstances were the view of the community is not clear and it’s so difficult to make a decision to satisfy all views. However, we strongly believe in the PDP process itself to approve the most needed proposals.

At this stage I would like leave the position as Co-Chair and engage more in policy development and discussion. I believe the circulation of the Co-Chair position is so healthy to the process. I believe also this is the perfect time to bring new chair, so the handover will be smooth while there is an experience chair (My Current Co-chair) in place for another year, and my term will be completed normally during the next meeting in May 2018.

I would like to thank Seun Ojedeji, Adewole Ajao, and Ernest Byaruhanga and the AFRINIC staff and the community at large for the support I received during my tenure, and I commit to continue server the community in any other tasks may assigned to me.

Best Regards,
