The battle of political supremacy between former Governor Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso and his successor, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has recorded a casualty in the Kano State-owned Radio Kano, Alhaji Habibu Musa Gwangwazo.
Gwangwazo, who is the station’s Chief Librarian, was suspended by the Managing Director of Radio Kano, Hajiya Sa’adatu Babaji, for purportedly airing a song which praised Kwankwaso, who is now a senator.
A continuity announcer at the station, Hajiya Furera Umar, who was on duty when the song was aired, was also issued with a query, Daily Trust reports.
A staff at the station, who craved for anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to press, said: “To be sincere, we are in a serious dilemma in this station. The suspended staff is our chief librarian and his offense was that he chooses a song in which the former governor of the state Dr. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso was praised”.
Efforts to reach Hajiya Babaji for comments on this report failed, as her phone rang without answering while the SMS sent to her phone, was not acknowledged.
