The visiting mission was to have a major impact on Anglo-French efforts to resolve the colonial aspects of the Ewe problem without any damage to respective imperial interests and prestige or to Anglo-French relations in general. The visit of the Trusteeship Council delegation encouraged a new round of petitioning from all parts of the Trust Territories. One petition from the Aflao Ewes called for the unification of Togo under the administering authority of the Trusteeship Council, and petitions from southern British Togo supported Togoland unification. In the French territory, petitions from the south north also called for Togoland unification, but Sylvanus Olympio and the All-Ewe Conference supporters were still adamant in demanding a unified Eweland, and the mission noted that the majority of the Ewes were in favour of such an outcome. The most important consequence of the visiting mission was its formal recognition of the political dimensions of the Ewe problem.
