Speaking at the national final of this year’s The Spelling Bee Nigeria Competition, the Team Lead at Peat Philips Foundation, organisers of the competition, Mr Akinleye Olu-Philips, said such competitions would build the knowledge of participants, boost their memory and confidence, as well as create healthy competitive spirit.
“Spelling bee involves the use of words and how it is applied in communication”. We believe that when the young ones are taught to develop critical thinking ability at early stage, it will help equip them as great leaders in adulthood. When a word is called out to be spelt, a participant should not assume what it could mean and that is why the participant has the right to ask relevant questions, which are known as the Lifelines. For instance, reign and rain may sound similar, but they are not the same. That is telling the participant not to assume, assumption could be dangerous at times.

“Assumption is one of the factors that is drawing us back in our nation”. The competition is also to help participants develop critical thinking skills. Today ’s world requires people who can think out of the box. Critical thinkers are needed for the growth of our society,” he said.

The Team Lead at Peat Philips Foundation, Mr. Akinleye Olu-Phillips, said spelling enhances education by improving students’ critical reasoning skills and helps Learners develop poise and composure.

“It also encourages reading because if you are a reader, you will be a great speller, and you will have depth and can contribute meaningfully to the development of any nation you find yourself in,” stated Olu-Phillips.

He said the foundation runs two literacy programmes, with international affiliations, The spelling bee and The young orators, which are focused on leadership and communications, believed to be one of the country’s major challenges.
While congratulating the winners, he advised them not to rest on their oars but to study hard and prepare for the intercontinental stage in the first week of October, 2022.

The event this year was sponsored by Learn Africa Plc formerly known as Longman Publishers with support from Indomie Noodles and Rite Foods Plc.

In his speech, the Managing Director, Learn Africa Plc, Alhaji Hassan Bala said Spelling Bee Competition would improve students Spelling and vocabulary and boost their confidence. He said Learn Africa dictionaries comprising Learn Africa Student’s English Dictionary for intermediate students and Learn Africa English Dictionary for Advanced Learners are the official dictionaries of the International Spelling Bee and The Young Orators competitions in Nigeria.

Lady born without Legs shared her experiences with his boyfriend. Eunice narrates how she was betrayed by people she loved and trusted so much with her life. Eunice, who was born with a disability, shared her story. Her parents died when she was 3 years old, and she was left in the care of her grandparents. She was humiliated, insulted, and demeaned in school because of her disability. She felt sad that she couldn’t run with her peers because of her disability. She was “very upset” when a classmate asked her why she didn’t have legs. She cried and asked her grandparents to send her to a disability school.

 

After graduation, she searched and searched for a job but was unable to find a job because of her disability. She later moved in with her brother.

The most terrible event of my life, because I loved him so much,” says Eunice. When she tried to get in touch with her ex-boyfriend, he told her to never call his phone again and to delete all of his memories. According to her, the caregiver tendered an apology. In the end, though, she was able to move on and forgive her. She cry every day since she couldn’t find a man to love her and marry her.
