Mira Ali Murad posed a question through a video broadcast during the opening session of the Government Summit, which was held last week in Dubai. She asked ‘Baba Mohammed’ when he would visit her school. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, replied that he was busy that week with the Summit and other affairs, but promised to visit Mira’s school on the first day of this week. At the podium in front of 2,500 delegates and during the live broadcast, Sheikh Mohammed instructed his staff to find out which school little Mira went to.
True to his word, His Highness visited Mira. Tweeting from his account, Sheikh Mohammad said
I was very happy today to visit Mira. Mira is a lovely girl .. I really wish her all the best. If only I wasn’t so busy, I would have visited all the schools in the UAE.
