Bawa stated this when he fielded questions from State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja, on Tuesday.
In an interview with Daily Trust, Malami said he is happy that the comments against Bawa’s nomination did not have anything to do with his competence.
Led in evidence by the prosecution counsel, Saidu Ateh before Justice C. A. Align, the EFCC boss analysed the email correspondences of the defendant.
Dated November 6, 2020, marked CR/3000/EFCC/LS/Vol4/322 and signed by its then Zonal Head, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who is now the EFCC chairman, media reports had it that the renewed probe was predicated on petitions written against Tinubu under the chairmanship of Ibrahim Magu, which he swept under the rug.

Last week, President Muhammadu Buhari nominated Bawa as EFCC chairman and asked the upper legislative chamber to confirm his appointment.
The nomination of Bawa was announced on the floor of the Senate last week in a letter submitted by President Buhari, which was read by the Senate President, Senator Ahmad Lawan.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Tuesday sent the nomination of 40-year-old Bawa to the Senate for confirmation, saying the request was in accordance with paragraph 2 (3) of Part1, CAP E1 of EFCC Act 2004.
