What is the correct variant?

There is an expression: “it says in the text that he was …”, is it wrong to use “it says” in this context, would it be more appropriate to use “it is said in the text that he/the character was ...”
When do we say “it says” and “it is said”? What is the difference between them?

Thanks in advance.
