President Sheikh Mohamed has mourned Sheikh Tahnoun bin Mohamed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Ruler’s Representative in Al Ain Region, who passed away today.

"[Sheikh Tahnoun] dedicated his life in loyal service to our nation and its people, continuing the vision of our Founding Father," the President said in a post on X.

He also described him as "a close companion of the late Sheikh Zayed".

"We pray that God bestows His mercy on Sheikh Tahnoun and blesses us with patience and solace at this time," Sheikh Mohamed wrote.

The Presidential Court declared official mourning with flags flown at half-mast for a period of seven days starting from today, Wednesday, May 1.
