According to him “the only lasting legacies the leaders of today could bequit to the incoming generation is the culture of Idoma people which is without blemish and uncompromising.
“Aside the culture of the people, I’m also committed to any social activity that will promote peace, unity and dignity of the Idoma people”.

He specifically acknowledged the efforts put in place by Johnson Manex Agada, Godwins Ochola and other Idoma youths in making sure the Idoma indigenous movies get national and international recognitions.

“This is the first time youths of Ogbadibo would come up with a cultural carnival. It’s a welcome development and I’m looking forward for a day when the whole Idoma people, old and young would converge on Otukpo for a general Idoma carnival.

“That’s my dream. I support Ogbadibo carnival with the whole of my heart and I enjoin all Ogbadibo leaders to subscribe to the success of this great event”, Itodo added.
