Ivory Coast: the Christian mayor offers a mosque to the Muslim community of Jacqueville

1 Min Read

After the Catholic religious community received a parish two years ago, it is the turn of the Muslim community to receive from the hands of the first magistrate of the commune of Jacqueville, Joachim Beugré, a religious building built on an area of a little over 700 m2 at a level of R+1, capable of accommodating 1,500 faithful.

A festive but above all memorable moment that denotes social cohesion and perfect cohabitation between the inhabitants, and the Muslim faithful, in unison, welcomed this gesture which delights them at the highest level.

“He is certainly a man of faith but not a Muslim, however, he offers a mosque, this testifies, firstly, to the interest he has in the locality, but above all to the true fraternity that we are looking for in Côte d’Ivoire, namely religious tolerance and sharing,” said Imam Amadou Sy Savané, representing the President of the Superior Council of Imams, Mosques and Islamic Affairs (COSIM), Cheick Aïma Ousmane Diakité.
