We should not be surprised. The GAFCON final Statement and Jerusalem Declaration makes no mention at all of any sort of covenant, much less an Anglican Covenant. As far as GAFCON is concerned any attempt to make covenant with the Provinces of North America and Brazil are out of the question. I don't think they are very interested in England either.
Primates related to GAFCON /FOCA who seemingly constitute the Primates Council recommended by GAFCON, signed off on a message to the Archbishop of Canterbury as follows:
"We assure the Archbishop of Canterbury of our respect as the occupier of an historic see which has been used by God to the benefit of his church and continue to pray for him to be given wisdom and discernment.
The Most Rev Justice Akrofi, Primate of West Africa
The Most Rev Emmanuel Kolini, Primate of Rwanda
The Most Rev Valentine Mokiwa, Primate of Tanzania
The Most Rev Benjamin Nzmibi, Primate of Kenya
The Most Rev Henry Orombi, Primate of Uganda
The Most Rev Gregory Venables, Primate of The Southern Cone"
As close as they could come to any acknowledgement of the person of the Archbishop of Canterbury is to say, he is "the occupier of an historic see which has been used by God to the benefit of his church." Nothing present tense, nothing about the function of that office now simply referred to as "an historic see."
It's a kiss-off.
In that letter reference is made to the appended critique of the St. Andrew Draft. These Primates then are issuing their first collective challenge to the Communion. They write, respectfully of course, to let the Archbishop of Canterbury know that the Covenant is dead in the water, and that he, by the way, is simply the office holder of an historic see.
A bit insulting, wouldn't you say?
