"A meeting of a lifetime". That’s how delivery rider Abdul Gafoor describes his meeting with Dubai’s Crown Prince.
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum met the Pakistani national in person to thank him for his good deed.
"An honour to meet you Abdul Ghafoor, a true example to be followed," said Sheikh Hamdan following the meeting.
Abdul Ghafoor told ARN News that he was truly humbled by the invite and Sheikh Hamdan's gesture to spend time with him.
The Talabat employee was spotted in a video last month, removing concrete blocks from a busy traffic junction.
After the video surfaced, Sheikh Hamdan put a call out on social media, saying, "An act of goodness in Dubai to be praised. Can someone point me to this man?"
In a later post he added that the "good man" had been found.
"Thank you, Abdul Ghafoor, you are one of a kind. We will meet soon!" he said at the time.
