Senator Andy Uba Sued in America Over Unpaid Water and Power Bills .




Senator Andy Uba has been dragged to court in the United States of America (USA) over his failure to pay water and power bills amounting to $35,448.55.

This was disclosed by an NGO, Global Integrity Crusade Network (GICN), which said it uncovered documents to this effect.

Providing details, GICN said Wednesday in a press statement made available to News Express and signed by the Advocacy Officer, Comrade Augustine Akan Eneji: “The City of Los Angeles acting by and through the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) on December 20, 2016 filed an Unlimited Civil Case with number BC644243 assigned to the Honourable Rita Miller sitting at Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles. The LADWP provided water and power to Andy Uba for three separate account numbers 6594661000, 7594661000 and 8594661000, opened on March 25, 2002, April 11, 2013 and May 17, 2013 at 7014 LaTijera Boulevard, Westchester, CA90045 apartment.”

GICN said it gathered that Andy Uba became indebted to LADWP in the sum of $35,448.55 from March 26, 2002 through November 23, 2016 down to February 2, 2018 when here signed to faith and agreed to settle his indebtedness out of court pursuant to a document tagged ‘Stipulated Settlement’.

It was ordered that the summons be served upon Andy Uba by publication thereof in The Metropolitan News, being a newspaper of general circulation at Los Angeles.

It was also contained in the statement that “one woman suspected to be Andy Uba’s wife living in the affected apartment at all material times received bills every month for water and power usage but failed to get her husband to pay same, thereby causing the bills to accumulate to $35,448.55 as at the date of signing the Stipulated Settlement.

“Based on the terms of the Stipulated Settlement, Andy Uba agreed to pay his accumulated unpaid water and power bills in two tranches of $3,762.65 on February 1, 2018 and $25,221.06 on before April 30, 2018, failing which judgment shall been there and enforced against him in addition to his payment of late charges in the sum of $6,464.84.”

GICN said it is “embarrassing that a serving Senator of the Republic of Nigeria would stoop so low to the extent of not being able to pay common water and power bills.”

Senator Andy Uba could not be immediately reached for comments.
