I think Vietnam country has suffered from a great loss of a sole hero. Your country has risen from the fierce wars to a peaceful and advanced era. I see that your people manifested a firm determination and belief for the leader they chose, in this case in their General Vo Nguyen Giap. The General of Vietnamese people seems a very ordinary a friendly man. He absolutely deserves the massive belief and love of Vietnamese people. His cerebrated victory in Dien Bien Ppu Battle has a strong influence on the liberalization and Independence movement in our African Continent. Providing you do not know the General Vo Nguyen Giap, you do not know Vietnamese History yet”, shared Chinedu Agwu (Nigerian students) after the program.
