Nigeria woos US-based scientist

New York- US (PANA) -- Barely two months after US-based Nigerian scientist Gabriel Oyibo called for support from African countries to help transform his discovery into development, his home government has invited him to head a new initiative, the Nigerian Experts and Academics in the Diaspora Scheme (NEADS).
Oyibo became an international figure following his nominations in 2002 and 2003 for the Nobel Prize for Mathematics and Physics, based on his newly discovered theories, found to have outranked that of the 1983 winner, Chandrasekhar and equalled that of the 1979 winner, Abdus Salam in physics.
Oyibo's two works, "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 caused major reviews of the subjects in both Europe and the Americas.
Peter Okebukola, Executive Secretary of Nigeria's National Universities Commission (NUC), said in a letter to the scientist that the Nigerian government's decision was informed by his (Oyibo's) "continuing world-renown scientific accomplishment.
" "NEADS is aimed at attracting experts and academics of  Nigerian origin in the Diaspora to contribute their quota to the development of the Nigerian University System, and hence to the development of the Nation through short-term academic appointments," Okebukola explained.
He asked Oyibo to arrange a month-long visit to Nigeria between October and December for the purpose of a nationwide lecture series, adding that NEADS activities would commence fully in January 2005.
Oyibo has accepted the Nigerian government invitation.
He says his new discovery known as the God Almighty's Unified theorem (GAGUT), has become a platform for Africans to reassert themselves to the leadership of the world.
"What we have done through GAGUT has brought Africans into their historical leadership of the world, in the sense that our people discovered and taught the world in the past," the Nigerian scientist added.
The University of Bridgeport, Connecticut teacher, said his discovery could prepare the whole of Africa for infrastructure in health, automobile industry, air-plane, computers, roads and water supply.
He said the Ofappit Institute of Technology, home to GAGUT, would conduct a workshop between 25 and 29 October to explain the benefits of the discovery to students, teachers and education administrators.
Oyibo also called on African governments to embrace the recent decision by Nigeria to review its science curriculum to reflect the GAGUT formula, which he described as the greatest revolution in modern world.
