adewale adeyemo


The United States President Barack Obama has appointed, a Nigerian, Adewale 'Wally' Adeyemo to succeed Caroline Atkinson as his deputy national security adviser for international economic affairs. Adewale has served in top roles at the Treasury Department of the United States.


A statement by Obama reads "For the past four years, I have relied on Caroline Atkinson, most recently as my Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economics, as we've navigated pressing challenges to the global economy. As my representative at the G-7 and G-20, she played a key role in coordinating our response to international financial crises, worked with our allies to devise and implement targeted economic sanctions to advance our national security goals, played a vital role in our economic engagements with China and helped to achieve breakthrough agreements on climate that will strengthen our economy and our security."


"I've relied on, and benefited from, Caroline's knowledge and judgment and as she concludes her tenure with my national security team, I am deeply appreciative of her service. I am grateful that Caroline's work will be carried on by Adewale "Wally" Adeyemo, who has served in my administration since 2009. At the Treasury Department, he was part of the team that helped coordinate our response to the global recession, laying the foundation for renewed growth at home and abroad."


"He helped establish the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and he's been our point person on a range of international economic issues, including negotiations on strong currency agreements around the Trans Pacific Partnership. I will be calling on Wally's intellect, judgment and dedication as we sustain America's global economic leadership, which reinforces our national security and as we work with allies and partners around the world to create jobs and opportunity for all our people."


Adewale has served in Obama's administration since 2009. He joined the White House's National Economic Council as Deputy Director. He was the Treasury's lead negotiator on the currency agreement that was part of the Pacific trade deal.

A Nigerian Scholar, Dr Opeyemi Enoch, has successfully solved a 156-year old Riemann Hypothesis, which was one of the seven Millennium problems set forth by the Clay Mathematics Institute with a million Dollar reward for each solved problem for the past 16 years.


Enoch, who is a lecturer at the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), became the fourth person to resolve one of the seven Millennium Problems in Mathematics, out of which three others had earlier been solved.


A statement in Ado-Ekiti said: “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."


Amongst the earlier successes and inventions of Dr Enoch are: designing of a Prototype for silo for peasant farmers; discovering a scientific technique for detecting and tracking someone on an evil mission; inventing methods by which oil pipelines can be protected from vandalism and had worked on mathematical models and structures for generating electricity from sound, thunder and Oceanic bodies.


He is currently working on Mathematical approaches to Climate Change.
