The 17-man contingent, consisting of seven male lifters and ten female lifters are led by World Champions Paul Kehinde, Roland Ezuruike, and Folashade Oluwafunmilayo.

According to the World Para Powerlifting, the tournament is the first regional championships ahead of the 2019 World Championships in Astana, Kazakhstan, and the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

However, the team can still be reduced as it is subject to the approval of the sports ministry, who will fund the trip.
