The carnival was then known as the Agila Social and Economic Carnival.  The Idoma International Carnival was created to revitalize  the dormant Cultural heritage of the Idoma land; its ultimate goal is to bring about a cultural Revival. Additionally, it aims to mobilize Investments by highlighting the business opportunities and resources in the Idoma Land resulting in the economic rebirth and empowerment of the young people. These goals are expected to be accomplished with the aid of art and culture.
