This carnival thing has become disgusting in my eyes. They should do something else abeg. How about hosting a festival that unites all the parts of Akwa Ibom in the state capital, Uyo.

How is a carnival disgusting? Its aim is to attract tourists to a particular area and in turn, benefit the state.

Most countries all over the world celebrate a carnival or two. Notable carnivals which we would term meaningless is the beer carnival in Germany and the tomatoes carnival in Spain.

This particular carnival celebrates the Akwa Ibom culture, particularly its dressings. I spent a week in Akwa Ibom last year because of this same carnival and although lapses could be noticed, it didn't stop people from several parts of the country witness the carnival.

Akwaibom/Cross River is the hub of tourism in Nigeria so they should keep up with the carnivals and promote it to the international level.

All part of the state is been represented, the carnival is a gathering of villages in the state and to display their different cultures.
