BOYCOTT BA FLYER FROM RESPECTNIGERIANS.COM
By Adeola Aderounmu.
It is very certain now that BA has definitely lost some customers. 3, 916 Nigerians have signed the petition at The Nigerian Village Square
Not everyone of these people fly BA but add these numbers to families, friends and relations, the message is clear-BA MUST APOLOGISE.
That useless and worthless message released in Nigeria by “somebody” is rubbish. That is not an apology. That one is Absolute nonsense. It’s not worth this page, lai lai!!!
From the Nigerian Guardian Newspaper: Tuesday 29 April 2008.
Following the outcry generated by the inhumane treatment meted to some Nigerians aboard a British Airways (BA) flight last month, the foremost African charity campaigning against the abuse of African children in the United Kingdom, Africans Unite Against Child Abuse (AFRUCA), has said it will never allow its staff to fly on any BA flights, until the airline stops the ill-treatment of deportees on its flights.
Speaking to The Guardian on Tuesday, AFRUCA’s Director, Debbie Ariyo said: “Even though we don’t use BA often and do not usually spend more than �5,000 flying with them every year, but they will never get anything from us again.” Ariyo also stated that AFRUCA would encourage its partners and supporters to take a similar stand. “We’re targeting only 60 people and even if it’s just a little, we will deny BA of that money.” In a separate press statement, AFRUCA also highlighted the plight of deportees who were trafficked away from their countries.
