Wilson Oruma (born December 30, 1976 in Warri, Nigeria) is a football midfielder from Nigeria. He is currently playing at AO Kavala.

He became the tournament top goalscorer when Nigeria won the 1993 FIFA U-17 World Championships. Some people feel he has "never really blossomed" beyond that level — nonetheless, he has played international matches for Nigeria, and was part of the team that participated in the 1998 FIFA World Cup. He also helped win the Olympic gold medal in 1996, a year after he debuted for Nigeria.

On club level he has played mainly in France. Signed by RC Lens in 1994, he was eventually loaned out to various clubs before moving to Geneva team Servette. He played rather well in Swiss football. In the year 1993, was the captain of Nigeria junior team under-17 that won FIFA world at Japan against Ghana 2-1 in the final.

During his short spell on trial with Cardiff City he struck up a great friendship with Northern Ireland fullback Tony Capaldi and the pair have stayed in touch via the medium of email, facebook and regular mail ever since.
