I am exceedingly overjoyed by the successive achievements registered so far. Like Christians plan, prepare and happily wait for the birth of the Holy Jesus Christ, on Christmas day, the staff, students and the entire YCI fraternity awaited the envisaged transformation of this YCI into a degree awarding institution (ODAI) which happened Aug/2015. It now has a unique curriculum premised upon vocational studies tailored to meet the global market trends.
