Gospel Singer, Kirk Franklin Reconciles With Father Who Abandoned Him

Posting this photo of himself and his father on his Instagram page, Kirk Franklin wrote;
"So.....Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live.
I’ve lived my entire life hating this man. He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough....to this very day.
I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own. But what I did wrong, is I never took that fuel, and turn it into forgiveness....and that is wrong. Wrong for him, me, and the God I proclaim to represent.
How can I preach what I don’t practice. So I flew to Houston yesterday to do that. It’s painful, it’s a process, but how disappointed I would be in myself for this man to leave this earth without being forgiven.

INEC To Ban Use Of Smart Phones At Polling Unit

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) may ban the use of smart phones at polling units as the 2019 general election draws near. This was made known by the chairman of the electoral body, Mahmood Yakubu, on Thursday, at an Election Dialogue Series organised by a civil society organisation, YIAGA’s WatchingTheVote, at Sheraton Hotels in Abuja.
Mr Yakubu said the move was to curb vote buying during an election. He explained that as voters collect the ballot papers to cast their votes, their mobile devices will be carted away from them because those who carry mobile phones along to polling units normally use them to take pictures of the ballot papers as evidence to the vote buyers.

”The commission would try and ban the use of some devices that aid vote buying on election day such as mobile phones,” Mr Yakubu said while addressing the audience.
