MD/CEO of Anambra State Signage and Advertising Agency, Mr Joe Anatune is dead. He was aged 62.

He died less than two weeks after his appointment by Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo.

He was the principal media manager of Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, and leader of his media team during last year’s election.

Anatune reportedly died on Saturday, few days after his 62nd birthday, and a little over a week after he bagged a government appointment, according to a report by Daily Post.

Anatune ws said to have worked tirelessly for Soludo’s victory last year.

Meanwhile, Prof Soludo has confirmed the death of Anatune, while also expressing shock and disbelief over the news.

Mr Christian Aburime, Chief Press Secretary to Soludo, in a press release, said the Governor received the news of Mr Joe Anatune’s sudden death with deep pains and shock.

According to Aburime: “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 quoted Governor Soludo to have stated further that Joe’s personal sacrifices during his electioneering were not only exceptional but also highly commendable.

“He spearheaded the Soludo Promoters Forum (SPF) and for two years used the platform to engage professionals into mainstream politics. The government and the good people of Anambra State will sorely miss Joe Anatune,” Aburime quoted the governor to have said.

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.
