With many reviews received after the publication of a controversial opinion article titled "Mascot in the Limelight of His Integrity", we understand the inconspicuousness of the subtle clues that marked it as an opinion. Adh-Dhikr Press Organisation, the press arm of the Muslim Students' Society of Nigeria, University of Ibadan branch is apolitical; hence the article was independent of the Organisation and did not reflect her views either.
