It graduates scholars and intellectuals and its students are part of the Yemeni people,”said Saleh. The intelligence in some countries sent students to study at the university to know about the curriculum it gives for students, but those students failed in the mission they came for and found only religious books and Islamic values being taught, said Saleh. President Saleh promised to contain the university graduates according to their specifications and to provide the university with sanitation services as well as asphalting its ground and building a mosque to contain 8000 worshipers.
