Does it matter who answers the question from Fatwa Department?

Shortened Question:
Does it matter who answers the question from Fatwa Department?
Question:
I submitted my question to Fatwa Dept. at Jamiatul Ulama Kwa Zulu Natal. The Mufti who answered my question is Mufti Taahir Hansa whom I am very convinced by his answer. Mufti Taahir’s name is also mentioned on the web page under I guess those who work at the institute.
But what caught my attention was that it says all questions in the Fatwa Department is handled by Mufti Ismaeel Bassa.
Now does it really matters who really answers the question, since it was submitted on the Fatwa Department’s question submission link?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

No. It does not matter who answers the Fatwa as it is the opinion of the Department.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
