New York, US (PANA) - Nigerian scientist Gabriel Oyibo has challenged fellow mathematicians and physicists to controvert his newly-discovered "Gi,j = 0" equation.

Oyibo, a professor of mathematical physics at Bridgeport University, Connecticut, US, claims his "God Almighty's Grand Unified Theorem (GAGUT)," has displaced the scientific theories propounded by Albert Einstein, the American theoretical physicist, known for the formulation of the relativity theory.

The three-time nominee for Nobel Prize in Mathematical physics in the past four years told PANA his equation was incontrovertible.

"I invite anyone to challenge GAGUT rationally, professionally, honestly and with sincerity," he said.

According to him, the "Gi,j = 0" formula, which provides solution to all mathematical questions in the world came as a rude shock to most people because Einstein could not solve the universal equation before he died.

Oyibo said that during his recent tour of Nigerian universities he explained GAGUT in simple language that even non-mathematicians could understand.

He therefore dismissed as time wasting a proposal that he discuss his theory with some of Nigeria's best mathematicians and physicists.

"Most of them were around during the National Universities Commission-organised lecture series which I used to explain the theory to the community," Oyibo added.

"All knowledgeable mathematicians have no problem with GAGUT as the only equation that solved the universal problem that Einstein could not," he said.

Oyibo's "The grand unified theorem, representation of the unified field theory or the theory of everything," and "The grand unified theorem: discovery of the theory of everything and the fundamental building block of quantum theory," have elicited major reviews in both Europe and the Americas.

The theories were found to have outranked the 1983 Nobel laureate Chandrasekhar and equalled the 1979 winner, Abdus Salam in physics.

The Nigerian scientist also said a fellow Nigerian mathematician Alexander Animalu, as well as the American Mathematical Society and the European Mathematical Society had carried out extensive reviews on GAGUT without any problem.

Oyibo, who has been enlisted by the UNESCO to participate in this year's international calendar of science, called on Nigerian government and businesses to harmonise programmes and policies to allow the country's intellectuals assist in the training of budding scientists.
