The man at the centre of kissing spree at St Monica’s College of Education, Rev. Father Balthazar Larbi Obeng has rendered an unqualified apology for his ungodly act of giving deep kisses to three level 300 students of the school at Asante Mampong last Sunday.
According to the School’s Chaplain who admitted his act was wrong, he took things for granted by adding human touch to his action which was captured in the video that went viral on social media.
He therefore requested for prayers as he goes through what he termed as challenging period after forcibly kissing the students.
In a statement he issued Friday August 20, 2021, he stated that “this unfortunate incident happened during a Church Service in appreciation of level 300 students who would be going for their Macro Teaching (campus teaching practice) when school resumed next academic year by the College of Chaplaincy Board.
The three students performs extraordinary well and therefore called to be appreciated by the Chaplain.
“Accordingly, I am sorry for my action seen in the video. I seemed to have taken a number of things for granted. I did not think my bahaviour through and admit that the act and it setting are wrong even in the absence of COVID-19.”
He therefore apologised to his archbishop, the Anglican Communion, the College, the affected students and their families and the general public.
“I pray for forgiveness from all and sundry and pray that you hold me in your prayers during this trying times. May God bless us all. Thank you,” he pleads.
