Nigerian scientist, Prof. Gabriel Oyibo, has been named the recipient of the maiden edition of the Africa International Prize for Science and Technology.
Announcing the award in Abuja on Saturday, Director-General of the Africa International Foundation for Science and Technology ( AIFST) Yakubu Ugwolawo said Oyibo was recognized for his scientific discovery.
He explained that the three-time nominee for the Nobel Prize in Mathematical Physics was honored for his discovery of the God Almighty's Grand Unified Theorem (GAGUT).
"It is for the imperative need to launch the continent of Africa into modern world of growth and prosperity that AIFST resolved to honor Oyibo with its maiden award for the Africa International Prize for Science and Technology," he said.
"In our opinion, this is the highest prize for academic achievement in history of science and technology, because GAGUT is the greatest human discovery," he added.
Ugwolawo said GAGUT, which was the holy grail of mathematics and physics was the equation that Albert Einstein and other luminaries searched for unsuccessfully.
The prize, which would become an annual event, featured the selection of persons and corporate organizations that have conveyed the greatest benefit to mankind by ways of making outstanding discovery or inventions within the field of science and technology.
Ugwolawo explained that the foundation instituted the award to honor and champion the promotion of Africans who have distinguished themselves in the field of science and technology.
"Oyibo, through his discovery of GAGUT, has ascended a greater height and this has been acknowledged by all those who matter in the world of science," he said.
GAGUT, discovered by Oyibo, is a revelation from God of the secret code to the universe for humanity in a simple equation of Gij,j=0.
The equation geometrically and exactly reveals that everything in the universe is conserved within a transformation process over space and time, he added.
He said the equation proved the existence of God and showed that God does not change.
Ugwolawo said "GAGUT is the only exact and correct equation in mathematics, the sciences and indeed all of knowledge; it is the mother of all correct equations."
