The book Insight on the Scriptures (Watchtower
Bible and Tract Society) describes justice as "The maintenance and administration of what is right in a fair and impartial
way and according to standard." Administering what is right and what is fair in a manner that does not exhibit
bias for or against anyone is a key component is ensuring that all individuals are treated equally.
Psalms 106:3 says
"Happy are those observing justice, doing righteousness all the time." Jehovah's own word the Bible describes
as happy those individuals who observe justice. One of Jehovah's great qualities is justice, and although we as
humans have frailties associated with sinful imperfection, we have been wonderfully made in Jehovah's image and unlike
lower animals, have the ability to understand and administer justice to ourselves and others.
Let us consider an example
for which all of us would want to have justice administered to us:
You drive into a gas station. In your wallet, you have a $100 bill along
with other denominations of cash. You purchase gas, hand the store clerk a bill, get your change and
rush out. Twenty-five miles and several minutes later, you decide to stop by a restaurant. You order your
meal, and after completing the meal, wait for the waitress to bring you the bill. Once she has presented you with the
bill, you look in your wallet, only to discover that the $100 bill is gone.
With some commonsense you are able to retrace
your steps and come to the conclusion that you gave the $100 bill to the store clerk at the gas station. As you sit
in the restaurant, you wonder what your next action will be.
Would you drive back the twenty-five miles to get the $100 bill?
Would you be furious with yourself? Or would you, at the very least, have suspicions that perhaps the store clerk may
have realized that he was given too much money?
No matter what you would do next, your desire to be treated justly would be
the driving force behind any decision you make from that point on. Although you may vaguely considered the possibility
of letting the store clerk keep the change that you know you are due, more than likely your desire for justice would impel
you to drive the twenty-five miles back to the store and demand to see the store clerk who you believe did not return
your proper change.
What is the point in all this? Well, I too am a person who seeks justice as a result of a situation
that took place 20 years ago with the individual now known as Senator Chief Ehigie Edobor Uzamere. Senator
Uzamere, while a young man, embarked on a series of actions that, among other things, resulted in his fathering a child
in the United States for whom he has virtually never cared, and a now bigamous marriage for which Senator Uzamere has
never made any attempt to reveal his whereabouts so as to allow me to serve him with divorce papers. At the very least,
I am due the child support he avoided paying by using a fictitious name and a fictitious social security number.
question may be: If this incident took place so long ago, why do you want to do something now? The answer is simple:
justice demands it.
Just as in the example where you would want to face the store clerk you believe did not return your
proper change, I also desire to face Senator Uzamere. I believe that Senator Uzamere's past and current actions
toward me and our daughter are both immoral and illegal and as such, I have a right to face the individual whom I believe
committed such dastardly acts against us.
Justice also demands that Senator Uzamere face me in the presence of a judge to
defend himself and his reputation against these charges. In the impossible chance that the allegations I have
made are false, Senator Uzamere, as well as the government for which Senator Uzamere is a civil servant, need
to defend themselves against such false charges. Senator Uzamere's and the Nigerian government's silence in
response to my allegations would be tacit acquiescence of the veracity of my allegations. In the eyes of the
Nigerian people, and in the eyes of the world, they would be seen as wicked.
After several attempts to call attention to
the crimes that Senator Uzamere has perpetrated against me and our daughter, Tara, we have unfortunately not been able to
elicit any assistance to our plight from either Senator Uzamere or the government for which he is a civil servant. Therefore,
I have chosen to use the internet as a forum to gauge the opinions of the public with regard to their feelings on what they
would do if an individual were to abuse him/her in the manner in which Senator Uzamere abused me and our daughter, Tara.
following pages will explain more fully Senator Uzamere's actions toward me, his wife and our daughter Tara so that you
will fully understand the extent of Senator Uzamere's wickedness towards us and my right to demand that justice be meted
out against him, and that justice be meted out in favor of the wife and child that Senator Uzamere abandoned in the United
