Al-Mizan Newspaper has denied to have links to the notorious Shiite sect after being dergistered by the Kaduna union of journalists.
The Newspaper, in a statement said “Al-Mizan like other vernacular papers is a Hausa Newspaper and not a religious newspaper and does not belong to any Shi’ite
organization as wrongly depicted by the dissolved EXCO.More so, the Al-Mizan chapel is one of the 13 chapels of the Nigerian Union of Journalists Kaduna Council
under which are several other Hausa newspapers that include Al-Mizan Newspaper, Gamji Newspaper, Dillaliya Newspaper, Kunnen Gari Newspaper, Dimokuradiyya Newspaper and Pointer Express which was duly registered with the Union after satisfying all the requirements.”
