Don accuses western scholars of conspiracy
A Nigerian scholar who solved 156 years old Riemann Zeta Knotty mathematical hypothesis, Dr Opeyemi Enoch yesterday described as spurious and unbelievable allegation against him by some western scholars that the 156 year old mathematical puzzle he solved was not original to him.
He, however, accused those who alleged him of plagiarism in solving Riemann Zeta Knotty mathematical hypothesis of promoting racial discrimination in the academic world.
He regretted that no African man have ever won Laurel title in Mathematics, Engineering and Medicine, hinging this on alleged conspiracy of the West.
Enoch had last week made a presentation in Vienna, Austria on the Hypothesis propounded by a German Mathematician, Riemann Zeta in
1869, thereby resolving the issue that had become a mathematical
puzzle for ages.
Speaking in Ado Ekiti yesterday, Eunoch said the allegation leveled against him by a PhD student in Yale University, USA that he plagiarized his work, was a misdirected venom and part of the conspiracy of some racist-academics in the West, who believe something good cannot come from Africa.
Enoch advised the federal government to continue to promote academics
with good invention, for government to make more money in view of the dwindling oil revenue.
He said the findings took him seven years to resolve, after his student brought the mathematical puzzle to him in November 14, 2008 from an online publication.
The academic said he has been sponsored by international bodies like Centre for Mathematics and Physics Association and Kwasulu University in South Africa to Port Novo, Benin Republic and Minikas in Morocco , to give presentations on the contentious mathematical issue in 2014.
Enoch, who graduated from the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, added that aside working on this Riemann Zeta function that part of his mathematical inventions also include: Using Mathematical function to detect someone with crime intention, invention of I-cell key holder, which earned him best inventor of the year 2012 at the Ekiti State University.
