Peak Milk Apologises To CAN Over ‘Insensitive’ Easter Advert

The management of FrieslandCampina WAMCO Nigeria, manufacturers of Peak Milk, has apologised to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for using the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as a metaphor to promote their product on Good Friday.

Stating the social media advertisement has been withdrawn and acknowledging the sensitivity of the social media post “considering the sobriety of the season,” the organisation said it was neither intended to make light of the significance of the season nor to inordinately exploit the unmatched sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

“Apology for the Good Friday social media post by the Peak Brand”, obtained by newsmen on Tuesday.

“We hereby restate our commitment to our unwavering mission of nurturing Nigeria while maintaining the respect of all religious laws, tenets and guidelines.

“Once again, please accept our deepest apology and pledge to prevent a reoccurrence of such in the future. Do accept the assurances of my esteemed regards”, Famurewa said.
