Introducing Philip Onyeaka, the Young Math Prodigy Who Shatters 8-Year Record with Perfect Score in International Youth Maths Challenge

Philip Onyeaka, a faculty member at Ideal International College in Kaduna, Nigeria, demonstrated unparalleled mathematical skills in the recently held International Youth Maths Challenge (IYMC). The young genius solved complex mathematical problems in areas such as Calculus, Combinatorics, Algebra, and Number Theory with ease.

Onyeaka achieved a remarkable score of 60 points – the highest attainable score – in the challenging mathematics competition. He was awarded a gold medal, plaque, and certificate of excellence for his outstanding performance, emerging as the best candidate at the national stage.

The talented Onyeaka has even proposed a solution for the 163-year-old Riemann Hypothesis problem through the Clay Mathematics Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to mathematical research.

With a passion for prime numbers, Onyeaka aspires to become a cryptanalyst, an expert in decoding messages without prior knowledge of the key. He has shown interest in the unsolved Dorabella cipher and looks up to notable mathematicians such as Prof. Terence Tao, James William Sidis, Alan Turing, and Karl Waitrass.

In addition to his mathematical genius, Onyeaka is also a computer and tech wizard, with mastery in various programming languages including Python, C++, JavaScript, and Assembly. He has received over 80 awards for academic excellence and mind sports in the past 6 years, including in mathematics, computer programming, electronic embedded systems, and chess.

Despite his extraordinary brilliance, Onyeaka’s obsession with prime numbers and mathematical equations may seem strange, but he credits spiders and cobwebs for inspiring his critical hunger and passion for mathematics. This Anambra-born young genius currently resides in Kaduna, and despite his achievements, he is yet to receive the recognition he deserves.”
