.The Agila Carnival started about five  years ago. It has since then assumed a sought after status for lovers of culture, tradition , fun, ideas, travels, trends and fashion.
It is usually held between the 22nd - 25th of December, every year in Agila , Ado LGA followed by a grand finale in the capital city of the Idoma people, Oturkpo, Benue State of Nigeria.
It draws participants and attendees from across Nigeria. It is the first and only star studded  get together event that conveniently fuses the usually incompatible pair of beauty and brains.
It has attracted notable Nigerian industries , organisations , corporate entities , grounded arts and social personalities. It is a money generating product, a youth empowerment platform and an innovative entrepreneurship project.

Prices for winners  include gift of cars, international scholarship, tour innovation development awards and community peace building networking programmes.
Today , we are transiting the phenomenon from Agila Carnival to Idoma International Carnival with its accompaniments holding  forth in Otukpo, Benue State, otherwise called TEXAS !
The transition to Idoma International Carnival takes certain responsibilities.
The new identity would carry an overall Idoma unity drive and initiative.
The Idoma people have long been involved in the transformation of the Nigerian project to its present level.
Yet our land is besieged by all sort of sub - ethnic infractions, ranging from duplicate complexes , avarice, secluded and  isolated individualism to slave driving mentality of a few privileged or pseudo privileged rental characters. There's the dire need for us to change all of these.
The Idoma International Carnival aims to attract our best in the arts , sports, fashion, academia, economy, agriculture and business to facilitate common grounds for building a self helping community in addition to government often scarcely resourced programmes.
Otukpo promises to be hotter in December when we will kick - off the Idoma International Carnival . We hope to roll back our forms as an entertainment community even in the face of daunting personal  and group survival methodologies .
We love our people . We think that we owe Idoma more than it owes us.

So we will soon be unveiling the imprimaturs  of the new face of Agila Carnival turned Idoma International Carnival in Otukpo soonest.
My people, may I humbly implore you to join us as as we host the world in this special event aimed at promoting our promises, hope and enduring legacies of growth.
Please, join us in this promising journey.
Prince Edwin Ochai
Idoma International Carnival

 I want all Idoma people to stop building barriers along the different dialets. Every dialet is very important to specific community. We should seek ways to promoting our nationality by hamonising the different dialets and seeking ways to preserve Idoma language. Idoma parents should endeavour to teach their children our language instead of the pigin English. This will preserve Idoma language.

 the leadership of INF must do more than enough to reach out to all movers and shakers of idoma sons and daughters whereever they are, whether in government or private institutions.our faith should not be put in the hand of one person.

 The politcal violence in Idoma land has kept Idoma sons and daughters with genuine intentions to contribute to the well being of idoma nationality away from participating in the politics in Idoma land. There is need to embark upon a mass public enlightenment campaign to educate our people and also to make our current political leaders understand that the only way a people grow is when the old groom the young. Any society where the old continue to hold on to power and crushes any younger generation that attempts to rise is doomed. We therefore need a rethink in Idomaland.

 Please create an opportunity to bring our elite together to help formulate strategies on how to provide us with our own state a d more importantly to have at least a university in our land. that will encourage quicker development as many of our youths are suffering for admissions out there and will just fall back to the only polytechnic and college of education we have, yet not providing us 'very good' opportunity.
thanks for this opportunity.
