The governor was returning from Abuja when he slowed down to display affluence by throwing money for the poor to pick from the ground.
Witnesses say the governor was seriously injured as he was dragged on the ground before his driver realised and stopped.
He was quickly rushed to an undisclosed hospital where he was attended to.
There were speculations that the governor has since then been incapacitated.
Reacting to the rumour of his hspitalisation, the governor on Tuesday said only his left leg was affected in the accident.
The governor made this known through his Media and Publicity Director-General, Kingsley Fanwo, while dispelling speculations that the governor is incapacitated.

“The Governor missed his footing last Friday, March 30, 2018 while alighting from a vehicle and injured his left foot. He was treated by his doctors, who bandaged the leg and discharged him.
“We thank all the Governor’s supporters and well-wishers who reached us to inquire after his wellbeing. His Excellency is doing very well and will be at work as usual after the Easter holidays.
