Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has issued orders with immediate effect for the provision of all the needs of an Emirati citizen who contacted Ajman Radio's live programme "Al Rabia Wal Nas".
Shaikh Mohammad gave the order on Monday to meet all the requirements for a decent living of the caller and his family within the next 24 hours, and to submit an urgent report to his office.
He also instructed Hessa Bint Eisa Bu Humaid, Minister of Community Development, to present a detailed and urgent report to the next Cabinet meeting on all the needs of citizens with low incomes and for the minister to present a clear plan in this regard.
Shaikh Mohammad underlined the importance of utilising national media in serving the nation and citizens and performing its mission in ensuring stability and a dignified life for everyone in the UAE.
Earlier, Shaikh Ammar Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman, has ordered the suspension of radio broadcaster Yaqoub Al Awadhi from working at Ajman FM Radio station.
The order was issued after the broadcaster's rude behaviour with a senior citizen who contacted him through the programme to complain about price increases and their impact on the standard of living of citizens.
The broadcaster interrupted him during his call saying it was not true and made fun of him with rude answers.
Shaikh Ammar stressed that the purpose of the programme was to listen to callers, help them solve their issue and bring relief to them.
