King Mohammed VI will soon see a mosque erected in his name in the Ivorian capital, Abidjan. Morocco has just injected more than 24 million dirhams (more than 1.4 billion FCFA) in the construction works of this religious place. Within this framework, two contracts have been awarded to companies for the continuation of the construction works of the religious building.
The first contract was won by the company Igazer SARL for an amount of MAD 12 million (more than CFAF 728.8 million). It relates to the external fitting out of the mosque. As for the second contract, it was won by the company Electromar SARL for an amount almost equal to the first one. It concerns the electrical works, the air-conditioning-ventilation system and the simultaneous translation system.
Officially launched in March 2017 by King Mohammed VI and Ivorian President Alassane Dramane Ouattara, this work will be spread over 34 months for a budget of 120 million dirhams (over 7.2 billion CFA francs). This mosque is built on an area of 25,000 square metres. It will be able to accommodate a total of 7,000 worshippers, with two wings reserved for men and women.
The mosque of King Mohammed VI of Abidjan will also have several other outbuildings, including a car park, a Koranic school, green spaces and a shopping complex.
