Prime Minister Allen Chastanet described it as the hug that was enough to make his week.
The remarks were posted on Chastanet’s Facebook page with a video recording of a youngster who runs into his arms.
Chastanet embraces the child, much to the youngster’s delight.
Persons in the background can be heard chuckling at the encounter which occurred Tuesday morning.
Chastanet had just ended a visit to the Government Printery to discuss with workers there, the challenges they faced, it was reported.
He is said to have been conversing with another youngster, when the child who later embraced him declared that she always wanted to meet him.
“You always wanted to meet me? You’re not scared? No?” Chastanet is heard asking the girl as they hug each other.
The child nods in the affirmative to the first question and appears to respond in the negative in response to the second query.
By Wednesday afternoon, the video had been viewed two thousand times.
