Nigeria. We Say NO To A New Dog meat market in Jos!

I have just read the article about dog meat sellers requesting a permanent stall to sell dog meat http://www.vanguardngr.com/2012/08/dog-meat-sellers-want-permanent-market-in-jos/ and wish to state my view on this. The Nigerian government has a responsibility to its public, and the world at large, to uphold high moral standards and prove that Nigeria is a progressive country which is evolving. If the Nigerian Government concedes to the demands of the dog meat sellers and indeed makes provision for a permanent dog meat stall in this market, it will only prove to the Western world that the 'Dark Continent of Africa' is indeed a third world undeveloped land of backward thinking individuals and no hope of advancement. Cats and dogs are seen as beloved companion animals in the Western world; these animals live in the homes of billions of people and are loved like family members. The Western world will therefore view your decision to approve this dog meat market as nothing short of appalling, disgraceful and shameful to your country and your continent. Promoting this archaic, barbaric practice is strongly condemned by many forward thinking countries, including your sister country South Africa. This kind of mentality belongs in the nineteenth century; we are now in the twenty first century so please take this under consideration when making your decision. Regressive decisions which are made by the Nigerian government will most definitely counteract the positive advancement and progression this developing country can make, so we urge you to refuse the request of these dog meat sellers to establish a permanent stall in Jos.
Thank you.
