KPA Birthday Marked in Nigeria
Pyongyang, April 28 (KCNA) -- There took place a Korean photo exhibition and a lecture in Nigeria on April 18 and 19 on the occasion of the 81st birthday of the Korean People's Army.

Displayed in the venue of the photo exhibition were photos dealing with the Songun leadership feats of President Kim Il Sung, leader Kim Jong Il and the dear respected Kim Jong Un.

Also on display there were photos on the proud victory of the KPA and photos on the Korean people's struggle to defend the sovereignty and build a thriving nation.

The deputy manager of a hotel in Abuja, Nigeria, said in a speech at the opening ceremony of the photo exhibition that the KPA is fully prepared politically and ideologically and in military technique and has grown to be a matchless army equipped with even nuclear deterrent.

The chairman of the Nigerian Group for the Study of the Songun Politics said in a lecture titled "Undying Songun feats of leader Kim Jong Il":

Kim Jong Il put forward the KPA as the pillar and main force of the socialist cause and made sure that whole society learned from the revolutionary soldier spirit displayed by the service personnel. As a result, there is close unity between the army and people in their ideological view and fighting trait. This means that the traditional single-minded unity of Korean society has been put on a higher stage.

He made sure that popular policies such as free education and free healthcare were enforced even late in the past century when the DPRK was facing worst difficulties and ordeals, instilling firmer faith in socialism into all people.

He devoted himself to improving the standard of people's living, regarding it as his maxim to believe in people as in Heaven.

His Songun revolutionary leadership is being successfully carried forward by Marshal Kim Jong Un.
