"Because of the challenges and what I have seen here today, I am promising and taking a firm commitment from today henceforth, I am going to be a bridge for the Menchum people to cross on... I believe being at the corridor of power, I believe projects for Menchum, Wum in particular will troop in their numbers. Looking at the project log book, you will find out what has come to the division, I think it's thanks to this position I was elected into"

"I have been given authority by the people and I think it's time to sit up. About the roads, it's time to meet authorities in Yaound√© to lobby for the start of the Menchum hydro electricity power project, time for the Bamenda Wum Road to be part of the ring road project, it is time for development to start flowing in Menchum Division. The massive turn out has given me alot of courage not to quit but fight and fight for the people", Mayor Dighambong Anthony emphasized
