Anambra: Soludo’s Aide Dies Few Days After Appointment
Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has expressed shock and sadness over the sudden death of Mr Joe Anatune, his Campaign Director, Media and Communications.
Late Anatune, who died on April 30, 2022 was appointed the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Anambra State Signage and Advertising Agency (ANSAA) by the governor, barely 11 days earlier, on April 19, 2022.
During the campaign period for Soludo’s election, the late Anatune, as the Director of Media for the campaign organization, played a frontline role as the spokesperson.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr Christian Aburime, Governor Soludo said he received the news of Anatune’s sudden demise with shock and was still in utter disbelief over the development.
The governor described Anatune as one of the “foremost apostles of the Soludo project” which he served with an uncommon strength and courage to deliver on any given assignment.
Soludo added that the government and the good people of Anambra State would sorely miss him.
According to the governor, Joe’s personal sacrifices during my electioneering campaign were not only exceptional but highly commendable.
“He spearheaded the Soludo Promoters Forum (SPF) and for two years used the platform to engage the professionals into mainstream politics,” he stated.
Aburime said the governor had reached and commiserated with the deceased wife, Mrs Ify Anatune and children, the Anatune family and Awa community over the sudden loss of their illustrious son.
Anatune died on Saturday, April 30, a few days after his 62nd birthday.
