Dear Ishola Kabir, 
I think the transfer of inter-RIR does not benefit AFRINIC for the simple reason that AFRINIC's resources are not enough for its region.

I stand to support the policy on proposal of IPV4 inter-RIR legacy resources transfer. 

We're running out of IPV4 resources and the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) have started to run out of of IPV4 resources as well. IPv4 inter-RIR legacy resources from and to other regions will offer a realistic solution to the problem of reclaiming the significant amount of unused IPV4 resources and allocating them to their most efficient users. The transfer will be subject to the need to main route aggregation and allow resources not in used in one region to be transferred to a region where it is needed. 

Preventing IPv4 Inter-RIR Legacy Resource Transfers would only push the demand and supply pressures surrounding the scarcity of resources into different channel such as the holder of this unused resources will do everything within their power for continued possession of this resources for purpose of black market, increase their value in an acquisition. 

Inter-RIR Legacy would definitely allows organization willing to release address resources to benefit monetarily by selling them to another region who wants them subject to the record keeping requirements and regulation of inter regional legacy instead of being hijacked or use without authorization. 

It is very obvious that the risk associated with this will be very small when compare to the potential benefit and this will also reinforce effectiveness of the inter Regional Internet Address Registries in global internet governance.
