“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,” he said.

“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 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,” he added.
