Among the Team Nigeria Spellers are Benedicta Chukwu of Divine Rays British School Obosi, Anambra; David Okoro of Deeper Life High School Aba; Isaac Iwelu of Nigerian Tulip International College Abuja; and Oluwafemi Odutola of Montclair College Ogun state.
These Spellers were outstanding in the Nigeria Spelling Bee 2019 National Finals held at Ritman University Ikot-Ekpene Akwa-Ibom State in July which was organized by the Bee Spelling Competition Initiative, a nongovernmental organisation endorsed by the Federal Ministry of Education.

We want to especially thank all parents/guardians, coaches and officials who accompanied the spellers and worked tirelessly for the successful representation of Nigeria at the continental event.
