Mushin boy wins Spelling Bee

Adewunmi Usman, an 11-year-old pupil of St Paul African Church Primary School, Mushin has emerged winner of the 2013 Spelling Bee competition (primary category).

He was declared winner at the competition organised by the Lagos State Ministry of Education before a packed audience at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, Alausa, Ikeja, on Tuesday.

Adewunmi was followed by Solomon Udugboku, of LA Primary School, Ilogbo-Elegba, and Benjamin Onyeagbo of AUD Primary School, Imota who came second and third.

The competition, which started with 50 participants, went through five rounds. Words that evicted participants in the third round include pugilist, vulnerable, and assault; in the fourth round, glutton, synergy, trailblazer, and dessert.

In the last round, which had the final three participants, they were asked to spell bibble babble which they all failed. Another opportunity to spell produced the winners.

Beaming with joy, Adewunmi thanked his parents, teachers, especially his coach, Mrs Bola Oredipe for encouraging him to read his books.

In an interview, Mrs Oredipe said Adewunmi is a good pupil.

?He is never tired, always want to try again and he encourages me,? she said.

She said when he missed the word Bibble Babble she thought it was the end of the competition for him, but God intervened.
