Abubakar Malami, the Attorney-General of the Federation, has debunked claims that he singlehandedly picked Bawa as chairman of the EFCC .
Malami, in an interview with Daily Trust, explained that he only recommended Abdulrasheed Bawa for the chairmanship of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as four names were submitted to the president for consideration and subsequently Bawa was picked.
The AGF also denied being related to the EFCC boss , while citing that Bawa has held various authorities, like serving various divisions as the head of operations, including Port Harcourt, Lagos, Ibadan and more.
“I am happy that most of the comments made are not on his capacity, intelligence, competence and associated ability to deliver. His capacity to deliver was never questioned across the nation.
The question is whether justice has been served, whether public interest has been served having the chairman appointed with a particular regard to his capacity and ability to deliver.
My answer is yes. He has the capacity, ability and institutional history of the institution to do justice by way of bringing about added value.”
