Kim Il Sung Praised by Nigerian Body
Pyongyang, April 7 (KCNA) -- An article titled "The father of the people" was posted by the Nigerian National Committee for the Study of the Juche Idea on its website on Mar. 30.

The article said:

President Kim Il Sung, founder of socialist Korea, is being praised by the Korean people as benevolent father.

He was not only the leader of one country but also the great father who looked after the life and destiny of the people.

Thanks to his warm love for the people the free healthcare and education systems have long been enforced in the DPRK and the improvement of the standard of the people's living has become the supreme principle of the activities of the Party and the state.

The people were his dear sons and daughters.

He made an endless journey for field guidance for them even on his birthday.

He devoted himself to improving the standard of the people's living, walking along lanes between fields of co-op farms even in the last days of his great life in 1994.

A photo of him finding himself among children is very impressive, in particular, when remembering him, father of the people.

He liked very much to spend time with children as he was possessed of such a transparent outlook on the rising generation as putting forward the children as the king of the country and sparing nothing for them.

His tender-hearted image will always be deeply cherished in the hearts of progressive mankind.
