Kim Jong Il's Exploits Lauded by Nigerian Organization
| Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- The Nigerian National Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea posted an article on its Internet website on Sept. 20 to mark the 15th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's election as general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK).
The article said that Kim Jong Il was elected general secretary of the WPK when the DPRK was undergoing harsh ordeals after the passing of President Kim Il Sung and due to the persistent moves of imperialists for stifling the DPRK and continued natural disasters.
It went on:
Kim Jong Il unfolded the plan for building a thriving socialist country.
The DPRK successfully launched the first artificial satellite Kwangmyongsong-1 developed by its own efforts in August 1998.
He formulated the Songun politics as a basic political mode under socialism. He also fully applied the Songun politics, while providing ceaseless military leadership.
Under his Songun leadership, the single-minded unity of the DPRK reached a new phase, the overall national power grew tremendously in scope and strength and even the nuclear deterrence was provided.
The WPK let the popular policies such as the universal free medical care and free compulsory education be constantly enforced in the closing years of the last century when the country was undergoing the ordeals due to the imperialists' offensive against socialism.
The article said that the light industrial bases conducive to improving the people's livelihood have been fortified in different parts of the country under the wise leadership of Kim Jong Il.
Although Kim Jong Il passed away, the WPK holds him in high esteem as its eternal general secretary.
His exploits in building the WPK will shine forever along with the DPRK winning victory after victory.
