This is a good conversation which allows some clarifications to be
brought, thanks Seun and Alan for your contributions. I am not
regularly contributing here but follow most of times the

I find this to be a good sign that AFRALO members are caring about
their RALO by sharing their concern (here through this motion), it is
something to encourage, not the other way around. I do encourage
healthy conversations around this motion form our colleague.

This can be discussed either here or in the appropriate mailing list
as mentionned.

I pesonally do believe we should set terms limit for all offices and
set the ALAC seat for 2 terms as well as the rest of our offices. Many
people have been talking about the issue of "same people holding
offices" but many of us here never step in whenever there is election.

Our reps are doing good job and i believe that's why they are re
elected by members here. I do encourage many people to present
themselves whenever there are open seats to fill.
