[rpd] Nomcom request for feedback

Hello Iyedi,
If the clarifications provided by Dr. Oloyede here ( is a true
reflection of what transpired, then the process has been flawed and
something has to be done to correct this ASAP.

Instead of considering the complaints from the four nominees that were
missing on the candidate slates sent out to the list, in the spirit of
transparency and credibility I want to suggest that *ALL the 9* nominations
be re-evaluated again and nominees given at least 5 days to respond to any
issue that needs clarification from the NOMCOM.
