“My attention has been drawn to a fabricated, concocted, mischievously assembled statement credited to me by those opposed to Mr Magu, trying to use my name to strengthen their position,” Sani said via Facebook.

“My personal opinion on this is simple; Magu is doing a good job as the Boss of the EFCC. All that is needed is the rule of law and fundamental human rights elements which need to be strongly observed by the commission, rule of law remains the most potent weapon in the fight against corruption.

“I remained respectfully bound by the majority position of the Senate on the issue, but wish to categorically and unambiguously state that I'm personally impressed with his performance,” Sani added.
