FrieslandCampina WAMCO has issued an apology to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) over it’s recent Good Friday post on the peak Brand’s social media handle.
This was contained in a signed statement today by the Management of FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria PLC.
It stressed that the social media post has since been withdrawn.
The Christian Association of Nigeria had earlier said that the company’s usage of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as a metaphor in the contentious advertisement to market their goods on Good Friday was deemed “absolutely unacceptable”
Barrister Joseph Daramola, the General Secretary of CAN, issued a warning to the corporation, advising it to pull the advertisement, apologize to Christians, or risk legal action and a Christian boycott of its goods.
