Welcome Message from Dean

“Welcome to GECC and to your programme of study. I sincerely hope you will enjoy your time with us and will find it beneficial to you. I am sure you will. At times it will not be easy but always remember that “education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today” (Malcolm X). I wish you every success and look forward to you graduating and, in the words of  Nelson Mandela, changing the world”.
