Newly elected Governor of Anambra state, Charles Soludo has lost his media aide, Joe Anatune.
Anatune who doubled as Soludo’s media team head during the election campaign, died on Saturday, April 30 after celebrating his 62nd birthday.
Anatun tragically passed away 11 days after he was appointed MD/CEO of Anambra State Signage and Advertising Agency.
The Governor, in a statement issued on Sunday by Christian Aburime, his Chief Press Secretary, expressed shock and disbelief over the development.
“Joe Anatune was one of the foremost Apostles of the Soludo project with an uncommon strength and courage to deliver on any given assignment,” the statement read.
“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,”
The statement said Soludo has since commiserated with Anatune’s wife, Mrs Ify, children, family and Awa community over the sudden loss of their son.
