According to the Diplomat who is also a son of Mankon, Fon Angwafo III was not only the lcon of the Mankon Fondom but also that of Cameroon.

"Your missing has created a palpable political, educational, agricultural and cultural vacuum in this nation that can hardly be filled. You became a politician in the 60s as a young Fon and your contributions to the political evolution of Cameroon have left behind many important pages of history." Dr Nkwenti Ignatius writes 
From his Position as Fon of Mankon, participation in the Foumban Conference, his works with President Ahmadou Ahidjo, his time as parliamentarian, engagement in agriculture amongst others,  Dr Nkwenti Ignatius considers 'King Solomon" as a leader of uncommon compare. 

"His Royal Highness did more than our tongues can tell. His Vision for many things was like a thousand miles ahead in the eyes of many. He modernized the palace without sacriticing cultural institutions. The modern museum he conceived, constructed, and equipped in the Fondom's Palace bears eloquent testimony."

Talking to on the sidelines of the official opening of the life celebration of Fon Angwafo III, the Diplomat who also leads the petroleum dealers in the North West Region indicated that the Fon was a traditional Diplomat. 

"Representing the Fons of Bamenda in the West Cameroon house of Assembly means that he was carrying the views of the Fons and the local leaders here into that political house of assembly which was called the house of Chiefs and also going to Fomban as a traditional leader, that was diplomacy. He went there to represent the Fons, to be their Ambassador in the West Cameroon house Assembly and even in Fomban."

While revealing that the Fon sent him on several confidential errands to Yaoundé especially concerning development, the Diplomat has express his satisfaction with some of the work being done in Mankon especially on the road leading to the Palace. 

He has pledged his loyalty to the reigning monarch describing him as the best choice for Mankon and promising all his support which can help him do even more than what the immediate past Fon did. 

He has called on his fellow mankon brothers and sisters to be prayerful and ask for God's blessings on the Fon and Mankon land.
