Nuamah died on the spot when a vehicle conveying Presidential press corps from an assignment in Ho to Accra was involved in an accident at Shai Hills last Thursday.
Sixteen other journalists and the driver of the vehicle sustained various degrees of injuries, with six journalists still receiving treatment at the 37 Military Hospital.
Carol Annang managing director of New Times Corporation said it was unfortunate that Nuamah died in the line of duty and hinted that the Corporation is working with the bereaved family and government for a suitable burial.
She gave the hint when Madam Helen Adzoa Ntoso, Volta Regional Minister visited offices of Ghanaian Times in the company of Regional Executives of Ghana Journalists Association and National Democratic Congress Party communicators to commiserate with management and staff of the news agency.
Ms Annang said Nuamah was a gift to the Corporation and the bereaved family and that his death was a “painful blow” to all.
Madam Ntoso later visited the residence of Nuamah and presented 10 cartons of bottled water and eight crates of assorted drinks to the bereaved family.
Agya Atta, Head of the bereaved family expressed gratitude to Madam Ntoso and said a week’s memorial of the demise of Nuamah would be marked on Saturday, August 29.
