The report had it that Okowa, who was billed to attend the World Teachers Day celebration at the cenotaph last Wednesday, could not attend due to the said ailment.

But debunking the rumours, the governor, speaking at the government house chapel on Wednesday said, “It is unfair and uncharitable to disseminate false information. It is very unfortunate at this age and time that people will intentionally misinform others when they are opportune to find out what might have happened.

“I’m told that certain section of the social media reported that I have been flown abroad for medical treatment. When and how did that happen? When I have been very busy treating hundreds of files on my table.

“The truth is that last Wednesday, I entered the washroom in my office and one of the tyres fell off from the wall and I had a minor cut on my head and I had two stitches and it was treated, and I was okay.

“People know I am a workaholic and that is why it didn’t stop me from working, I am hale and healthy,” the governor stated.
