Abdul Hayi Moomen, a broadcast journalist, author, and lecturer, has parted ways with Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, the public broadcaster (GBC).

Abdul Hayi Moomen, who joined Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) in 2009, will be the Head of Corporate Affairs at the North’s premier university, according to reliable sources available to this portal.

He has declined to comment on the topic, but the University for Development Studies (UDS) has verified that he would start work later next week.

The prolific writer, who is known for his sense of humour, is anticipated to provide a spark to the UDS by leveraging his extensive media relationships as a practitioner.
