Nigerian scholar solves most important problem in Mathematics, wins $1m

A Nigerian has successfully solved the most important problem in Mathematics.
The 156 years old Riemann Hypothesis has been solved by Nigerian scholar, Dr Opeyemi Enoch.
This outstanding feat adds Dr. Opeyemi, who lectures at Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) to the list of three other eggheads to have solved one of the seven Millennium problems in Mathematics.
Prior to this breakthrough, the Kogi state-born scholar worked on mathematical models and structures for generating electricity from sound, thunder and oceanic bodies.
On November 11, 2015 during the International Conference on Mathematics and Computer Science in Vienna, Austria Dr Opeyemi gave a presentation of proof.
The proof of Dr Opeyemi’s brilliance appears to be more symbolic as it comes on the day and month 156 years after the problem was delivered by a German Mathematician in 1859.
The Riemann Zeta Hypothesis for the last 16 years is one of the seven Millennium problems set forth by the Clay Mathematics Institute with a million Dollar reward for each solved problem.
According to the statement released in Ekiti, “Dr Enoch first investigated and then established the claims of Riemann. He went on to consider and to correct the misconceptions that were communicated by Mathematicians in the past generations, thus paving way for his solutions and proofs to be established.
“He also showed how other problems of this kind can be formulated and obtained the matrix that Hilbert and Poly predicted will give these undiscovered solutions. He revealed how these solutions are applicable in cryptography, quantum information science and in quantum computers,” it stated.
The University lecturer had previously discovered a scientific technique for detecting and tracking someone with a perceived evil mission as well as built a prototype silo for farmers.
He has also developed methods by which oil pipelines can be protected from vandalism and he is currently working on Mathematical approaches to Climate Change.
