The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has donated GH¢1,000 towards the Endowment Fund being established by the New Times Corporation for the son of Mr. Samuel Nuamah who died in a motor accident on August 20.
This was when the AMA’s Chief Executive, Mr. Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, yesterday visited the New Times Corporation (NTC) yesterday, to commiserate with the management and staff over the death of Nuamah, the Ghanaian Times presidential correspondent who died when the Presidential Press Corp was involved in the accident at Doryumu Junction, in the Shai Hills.
Mr. Vanderpuije was accompanied by the Coordinating Director Mr. Samuel Ayeh Dartey and some officials of the assembly.
Briefing the top hierarchy of The Ghanaian Times, Mr Dartey said the late Samuel Nuamah was a friend of the assembly.
In view of the assembly’s close affinity with Nuamah and the NTC, Mr. Dartey announced that the assembly would also provide the burial ground for his final interment, plus 20 crates of assorted drinks and 20 boxes of bottled water to support the funeral.
He said Nuamah was always available and covered the assembly diligently with speed and accuracy, anytime the President had an assignment with the AMA.
“Knowing who he was, we are saddened by his sudden death,” Mr. Dartey said.
Mr. Vanderpuije, expressed his “deepest condolence to the family and the NTC over the loss” and urged the family and the corporation to be steadfast in their moment of grief.
It is with the deepest regret that I express condolences on behalf of the AMA, the Chief and people of Accra to the family of our dep0arted brother for the sudden death. May he rest in Perfect Peace,” he said.
