Barrister Joseph Daramola, General Secretary of CAN, warned the company to retract the advertisement and apologize to Christians or face legal action and a boycott of their products by Christians.

“We believe this advertisement is insensitive, offensive, and completely unacceptable.” Good Friday is a solemn day for Christians worldwide, commemorating the death of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who was crucified on the cross for our sins. “This is not a day for sleazy commercialism,” he said.

Daramola went on to say that FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria PLC’s actions were an affront to millions of Christians in Nigeria and around the world.

“We are deeply disappointed that a company of such repute would stoop so low to profit from its customers’ religious sentiments,” he said.
