Dear AIG Members,
For about nine months now, we have all noted the African Internet Group (AIG)
in its kind of activities. It has not lived up to standards and expections.
There has been no sense of direction and no concern by its leaders to pursue
any goals related to overall African Connectivity. Within the realm of the AIG
as it is, valuable time, efforts and resources would continue to be
mis-directed or wasted; and overall African Connectivity will never be a
reality. In view of this therefore, this is formal notice to all concerned of
my resignation from the AIG.
Considering the fact that overall African Connectivity is a difficult but not
an impossible task,
Convinced that there is available potentials for overall African Connectivity
to take place, I would like to share with you (in the next mails), two
postings pertaining to this matter, which I made within this nine month
period. The first posting has the subject "Global Connectivity To Africa in
Deadlock", and the second posting "The Way Forward". Some of you have
received and reacted to one or both postings. Unless you have something new to
add, you do not need to resend me your previous reactions.
Derek Ajesam Asoh
