My condolence goes to Bro Emeka, Bro Tony , Sis Chugo , Sis Rita , Daniel(Mighty Igor) , IK ( Oti Nnewi), Oby , Chi-Chi and the rest of the Ubajaka Household on the demise of their patriarch , Chief D. C Ubajaka, Okaka Anedo, Ebulebu Nnewi , Chairman , Izuchukwu Transport Company , Fellow Institute of Transportation and former National Secretary, Peoples Club of Nigeria.
The history of the entrepreneurship and business acumen of the Igbo race will not be complete without according due respect to one of the trail blazers of this noble quest for excellence.
Okaka co-founded the Izuchukwu Transport Company Limited in the 50’s with his brother Chief B.O Ubajaka of blessed memory. The Company continued to grow in leap and bounds providing employment opportunities to Nigerians until the advent of the civil war. At the end of the civil war , the company resumed operations , transporting majority of Igbo’s to different parts of the country to begin life afresh.
Branches were opened all over the country manytimes at losses to the business to make sure that the Igbo’s were resettled in every part of the country and encouraged to continue with their entrepreneurship spirit.
Okaka provided support and mentorship to many successful young Igbo and Nigerian business men . He was a strong pillar of the Catholic church , made available his wealth and time for the propagation of the gospel of Christ.
Adieu Papa anyi, rest in peace Okaka.
My Men, Daniel Izuchukwu Ubajaka( Mighty Igor, HNC) and IK Ubajaka(Oti Nnewi) take heart for your father will always be remembered for his good works and service to humanity."

"Uncle, the tears in the eyes are dried, but the tears in the heart are always fresh whenever i see your picture. The story was unbelievable when it was told, like a dream it happened but it was real. You were gone, forever from the planet earth, but forever with God and the Angels you are now. The earth's inhabitants miss you, but the angels rejoice. MAY YOUR PEACEFUL, GENTLE, LOVING, AND KIND soul CONTINUE TO REST IN THE BOSSOM OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD. AMEN. ADIEU."

Rest in Peace Daddy.
Rest in Peace Epulepu Nnewi.

"My Father, The Greatest Man Ever Lived
You are the greatest father ever lived
The wisest ever known,
The greatest strategist
You are the rightful king, to me,
You are sitting upon a throne with Jesus right now

For when I was in darkness, you have been my guiding light,
When everything went wrong, you have put my world to right.
For when I was uncertain, you kept me standing firm,
And when I did not know, You helped me to learn.

You are the greatest man ever lived
You were my hero, The best friend I ever had,
We must be the luckiest of all children
To be able to call you, our dad.

You made the greatest sacrifice for us
Just like a Rose, Trampled on the Ground
You took the fall, Thinking of Us,
Above all, it has always being about us
Adieu My Hero, My father"

"My heart is broken. My dad, father, husband and friend has left me. He's gone to a place I can't reach him but he can hear me. I know he hears me. So hear this Grandpa; we miss you. We miss the phenomenal entrepreneur who built an empire with his family. We miss our knight in shining armour who sought justice for all. We miss the generous lover of fine dining. We miss the glue that brought all things and all people  together; but most of all, we miss our gentle peaceful and fun loving dad. In our normal African fashion, we probably never told you, we loved you. We do. We Love you. We all go home someday, that is sure. Just one request I have. If my time is up, I hope you will  be with the angels to lead me home. Rest now daddy and continue to watch over us."
