Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, posted a picture of him with the delivery bike rider named Abdul Ghafour, who became famous for removing two concrete blocks from a busy road in Dubai.
Sheikh Hamdan said he has set a really good example to follow.
Sheikh Hamdan said in a tweet, commenting on the photo of the meeting, “It is an honour to meet you, Abdul Ghafour. You are a real good example to follow.”
Sheikh Hamdan previously praised the biker's behavior after he appeared in a video while removing two concrete blocks that were in the middle of a road, asking the followers to help find the man, who was later identified and thanked for his act.
In the video, which he posted on his Instagram account, a biker is waiting at an intersection for the traffic to stop so he could remove it.
As soon as the traffic stopped the biker ran to the place and carried blocks and put them near the traffic lights.
As soon as he finished removing the two pieces, he returned and rode his bike and sped way.
Earlier Sheikh Hamdan stressed that the charitable work in Dubai deserves appreciation.
On July 32, he wrote: "Doing good in Dubai is commendable... Can someone guide me to this man?"
