Gwangwazo's suspension was reportedly signed by the Managing Director of the radio corporation, Hajiya Sa’adatu Babaji.
An announcer at the station, Hajiya Furera Umar, who was on duty when the song was aired, was also issued with a query. A staff at the station, who spoke to Daily Trust on condition of anonymity 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”.
