In an interview with the Daily Trust, Malami refuted claims that he single-handedly selected Bawa as the EFFC chairman. He said four names were submitted to the president for consideration, and Bawa was ultimately chosen.

Bawa “has held various authorities, including serving as the head of operations in various divisions, including Port Harcourt, Lagos, and Ibadan, which are adjudged to be the high point,” according to the AGF.

He also denied being related to the EFCC Chairman and refuted claims that Bawa’s appointment subverted some of the commission’s functions.

Malami said;

“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.”
