DPRK's Birthday Observed in Nigeria
|Pyongyang, September 27 (KCNA) -- There took place friendly meetings and film shows in Abuja City and Nasarawa and Niger States in Nigeria on Sept. 5 and 7 in celebration of the 65th anniversary of the DPRK.
The participants of the film shows watched Korean films such as "Pyongyang at Night" and "The Tower of the Juche Idea".
Alhassan Mamman Muhammad, chairman of the Nigerian National Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea, said in a speech that the DPRK is a politico-ideological power which has maintained independence with its own steadfast guidelines and ideology on the basis of solid socio-political foundation.
The DPRK led by Marshal Kim Jong Un identical to President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il is now making a dynamic advance to emerge a power in the economy, science, technology and sports and all other fields, consolidating its position as a politico-ideological and military power, he added.
A senator of the National Assembly in Nigeria praised the DPRK as an invincible socialist state.
He said people have little understanding of what the DPRK is like due to the misinformation spread by the Western media.
To see and hear at first hand by visiting the DPRK is to properly know about it, he recommended.
The permanent secretary of the Niger State Government said the Korean people have an unshakable will to courageously advance with neither compromise nor concession in protecting their national sovereignty.
That is why even the very haughty U.S. dares not provoke the Korean people strong in their will to defy death and weather any difficulty, he added.
A message of greeting to Kim Jong Un was adopted at the event held in Abuja City.
