According to him: “Well of course I’m okay, as you can see I’m very much okay… What happened today (Thursday), you’re aware today is 16th of September, and it is National Identity Day celebration. I was invited by the NIMC, specifically the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy and while giving my goodwill message, I had to excuse myself because there was a bit of dizziness on me

“Then of course I went straight to the hospital, where the doctors confirmed that everything about me is okay but for the fact that I was a bit dehydrated and I need to take a lot of water. So straight away from the hospital, I went to the office tidied up one or two things; I’m now back at home.”
