“Sons and Daughters of the Emirates,

Nations and peoples glorify the creators of their achievements and civilization. They are proud of the achievements of their leaders. In the UAE, we are proud of this unique leader, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. He is loved and respected by his people, and by everyone in the world. He is my brother, teacher, the companion of my journey.

In the Year of Zayed, my brother, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid completes 50 years of serving the nation. (It was 50 years ago that) … he became the Dubai Police chief. His is a journey filled with giving. He accompanied the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum in the school of life, until he himself became a school of leadership, management and life.

In 50 years, Sheikh Mohammed, you raised the limits of ambitions, invested in the human, established a civilization and continue reaping the benefits of your achievements along with your people. In 50 years, Sheikh Mohammed, many things changed around you, but your care, sincerity and love for your country didn’t.

I congratulate the generations, including myself, that learned from you. In you, I found the mentor, friend and a loyal supporter. In the future, we will continue the journey of working and giving. With the will of God, we will raise high the name of our nation. May God protect you for your country, give you a long life and bless your efforts. I call on those in this country and beyond to say a word of thanks to the leader who enriched the country with his thoughts, visions, innovations and his exceptional initiatives.

Thank you, Sheikh Mohammed, for giving 50 years to the country.

Mohamed bin Zayed”
