According to reports, during a church service at the Government House Chapel, Okowa said, "The truth is that last Wednesday, I entered the bathroom in my office and one of the tiles 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 ok. People know I am a workaholic, and that Is why it didn't stop me from working, I am hale and healthy.
"Am told that certain section of the social media reported that I have been flown abroad for medical treatment. When and how did that happen? 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 there are opportunities to find out what might have happened.'' Okowa lamented.
