Soludo’s media manager dies 11 days after appointment

Anambra State Governor Prof Charles Soludo has lost his media manager Joe Anatune.

The deceased led Soludo’s media team in the build-up to the governorship election last year.

Anatune died on Saturday, few days after his 62nd birthday.

He was only appointed the MD/CEO of Anambra State Signage and Advertising Agency by Soludo on April 19, 2022.

Soludo expressed shock over the incident in a statement by his chief press secretary Christian 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,” the statement said.

“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.”
