Hamdan praises food delivery biker for removing concrete blocks from road, promises to meet him
Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, praised the behaviour of a Talabat delivery biker who stopped to remove two pieces of concrete blocks that were in the middle of a road.
The biker has been identified as Pakistani national Abdul Ghafour, who works for Talabat.
Sheikh Hamdan personally called Abdul Ghafour and told him that at present he is out of the country and will meet him as soon as he returns to the UAE.
Earlier, Hamdan asked his followers to help identify the man so he could thank him for his favour.
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.
Sheikh Hamdan stressed that the charitable work in Dubai deserves appreciation.
He wrote: "Doing good in Dubai is commendable... Can someone guide me to this man?"
Later, he announced that the delivery driver, Abdul Ghafour, had been found, thanked him for his behaviour, and promised to meet him soon.
