May 01, (THEWILL) – The newly appointed Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer of Anambra State Signage and Advertising Agency, Joe Anatune, is dead.

Anatune reportedly died on Saturday, few days after his 62nd birthday, and a little over a week after he was appointed on April 19, 2022, by Governor Soludo as Head of the Advertising Agency.

Anatune was the image manager of Anambra State Governor, Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo and leader of his media team, during last year’s gubernatorial election. 

Confirming the sad development, a statement issued by the chief press secretary to the Governor, Christian Aburime, expressed shock and disbelief over the news of Anatune’s sudden death.

He said: “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.”

The statement 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.”
