Och’ Idoma Becomes football Patron in Benue

Barr. Edeh who hailed the indelible impact of Och’ Idoma in ensuring peace and unity of his domain, urged the Monarch to give approval for annual hosting of Och’ Idoma Cup.

While recalling the dearth of football activities in the state, particularly in Otukpo, Barr. Edeh appealed to Och’ Idoma to use his revered position to urge the state government in collaboration with the 23 Local Government Areas to put the interest of football development at heart by making available land for stadiums as well as put it in place.

He said, “No doubt, Otukpo does not have a single stadium where your children can train or play any match. The only one (township stadium) we managed to have back in the decades, is no longer available after it was taken over by a federal government agency.
