He described Anatune as one of the foremost Apostles of the Soludo project with uncommon strength and courage to deliver on any given assignment.
He said, “Anatune’s personal sacrifices duringg the electioneering campaign were not only exceptional but highly commendable. He spearheaded the Soludo Promoters Forum and for two years used the platform to engage the professionals into mainstream politics.”
According to the governor, the government and the good people of Anambra State will sorely miss Joe Anatune.
Soludo also commiserated with his wife, Mrs Ify Anatune and children, the Anatune family and the Awa community over the sudden loss of their illustrious son.
