The Crown Prince and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum took an abra ride from Dubai Creek.
Sheikh Hamdan talked with the captain of the abra and called him the “best captain” and broadcast it live on social media where he’s more than 6 million followers on Instagram.
Mubashir Zahoor Ellahi belongs to Pakistan. He’s been working as an abra driver from 8 years. He said, “He was surprised to carry a VIP passenger on board his boat” and “It was such a big honour when Sheikh Hamdan came to me and patted my back. It was a reassurance and a reward that I’m doing a good job.”
Sheikh Hamdan said to Mubashir, “May God always give you good tidings.”
