Chief Udeh-Ubaka was recognised by the State Government in November 1977, and installed the Igwe of Oraifite in December of the same year. He ruled Oraifite until his death some time around the end of 1984. Chief Ude-Ubaka pursued a successufl career in both the then Ministry of Works and the Ministry of Local Government in Port Harcourt where he attained the high rank of both the Inspector of Works (building) in ministry of works and later, Head of the Building Section of the Ministry of Local Government in Port Harcourt.
After his retirement from civil services in 1971, the chief established a very successful civil Engineering construction firm - Messrs Ude-Ubaka and Sons Limited with headquarters at Enugu. He progressed to become one of the most illustrious sons of Oraifite in his area of endeavour before he went into the chieftaincy scheme.
Among his achievements as the Igwe of Oraifite included the building of Police quarters and Office in his Palace, the setting up a modern Post Office building and staff quarters in Oraifite, initiation of the electricfication of Oraifite by NEPA Lagos, and handsome donations towards the Oraifite Cottage Hospital as well as to many social clubs in the town. He was a philantropist of no mean order and a man of charming and powerful personality. He was married wth seven children.
By the death of this illustrious son of Oraifite, at the blom of his life, the town unquestionably lost one of her formost citizens. The unfortunate exit of this great philantropist firm our midst at the time he did, must be deeply reflected upon by Oraifite citizens.
Although we cannot question God, but we must learn from experience that no town can become great which trades her citizens with destructive forces of falsehood and treachery only for selfish gains and gratification of hollow individual egos. It is hoped that Chief Udeh-Ubaka has not died in vain.
