Dr. Nii Narku Quaynor has laboured as a General in the ICT Army in  
Africa over two decades providing leadership, vision, foresight,  
strength and the best of field commandship - in his own words, "a  
strike against techno-colonialism. A lot of us have learnt from his  
fortitude, tenacity and sense of commitment to cause that sometimes  
is not as well recognised but yet the only hope for generations to come.

Nii'a efforts has resulted in great strides not only in the technical  
community but in the other disciplines and stakeholder manifestations  
across board. It is important to underscore his great work as one of  
the pioneers also of the building of institutions for the knowledge  
economy in Africa of which AfriNIC is a classical example of great  
gain. Not to talk about his building of systems, people, spaces and  

Please join me in congratulating a five star General, Nii which means  
in our local dialect, Chief.....
