Soludo’s media manager Joe Anatune dies days after govt appointment

Mr. Joe Anatune, the image manager and leader of Anambra State Governor Prof Chukwuma Soludo's media team during last year's election, has died.

Anatune died on Saturday, a few days after his 62nd birthday and just over a week after being appointed to the government after hard campaigning for Soludo's victory last year.

Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo just nominated him as the MD/CEO of Anambra State Signage and Advertising Agency on April 19, 2022.

Prof Soludo, meantime, has confirmed Anatune's death while also expressing shock and surprise at the news.

In a press release, Mr Christian Aburime, Soludo's Chief Press Secretary, said the Governor was "very pained and shocked" by the news of Mr Joe Anatune's abrupt death.

According to him, "Soludo described Joe Anatune as one of the foremost Apostles of the Soludo project with an uncommon strength and courage to deliver on any given assignment.

"He stated further that Joe’s personal sacrifices during his 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. The government and the good people of Anambra State will sorely miss Joe Anatune," Aburime said.

"Joe! Your death is another rude reminder that life is transient. I actually spoke with him around 4pm yesterday, and 24hours later Joe is no more.

"This cuts deep. May the good Lord grant your soul eternal rest. Rest in peace my friend Joe Anatune," Soludo wrote.

He added that Governor Soludo had since commiserated with Anatune’s wife, Mrs Ify Anatune and children, the Anatune family and Awa community over the sudden loss of their illustrious son.
