    I take this chance to congratulate the poeple of UAE both locals and expats. Sheikh Khalifa is a great leader not from when he became the UAE president only, but also since he was the crown prince of Abu-Dhabi when Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan used to rely on him running the daily affair of Abu-Dhabi. Sheikh Khalifa was the mastermind for many of the leading projects in Abu-Dhabi and a very generous leader that loves his people. His strategic decisions gave UAE a strong political stand that made the whole world respect UAE and ensured for UAE economic and safety stability in the most critical and and least stable world economy. All the UAE people both local and expats should be happy and be glad we have Sheikh Khalifa as our leader because for you to live in tthe UAE knowing you live in peace and you feel safe to leave your children in a public place is a great bless. Thank you Sheikh Khalifa for all what you gave to us and god bless you and your crown prince Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed.
