"Joining the Institution was the best decision i ever made in my life. I not only learnt the basics and the facts but also the ability to apply what i learned into life thus giving me a head start in solving life tackling issues concerning my field of work. There cant be any better way to thank my former college mates, and staff for their ever helpful support and teamwork that made me who i am today."
