Socialism in DPRK Praised by Nigerian Organization
Pyongyang, January 15 (KCNA) -- The Nigerian National Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea posted articles introducing the DPRK on its website on Jan. 8.

An article titled "Social phenomena peculiar to the DPRK" noted:

There are special social phenomena drawing attentions of foreigners in the DPRK.

People do not know housing cost.

Foreigners are greatly impressed by the Changjon Street newly built in Pyongyang.

The reason is that ordinary people are owners of flats and they are utterly unaware of costs of their flats. In the West it is unimaginable for toiling masses to buy such fine houses.

Another phenomenon peculiar to the DPRK is that they pay no money to their doctors.

Those living in capitalist countries can not understand the DPRK where people have their own doctors as it is only possible for the rich in their countries.

Parents are entrusting their sons and daughters to the care of the country in the DPRK.

A law on introduction of universal compulsory 12-year education was adopted at the 6th session of the 12th Supreme People's Assembly of the DPRK in 2012.

One should pay attention to the fact that it is free education.

Not only the compulsory education but also education at universities, post-graduate courses and other higher education institutions are also free of charge.

Doctor's fee, housing cost and taxes which are common to all the countries in the world do not exist in the DPRK as it enforces sunshine-like policies for the people.

The slogan "Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!" has been applied in all fabrics of social life in the DPRK.

Its socialist system is incomparably superior to capitalist society where jungle law prevails and money is regarded as omnipotent.
