The minister who doubles as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Manyia South Constituency said Mahama cannot criticise the policy.
Mahama during the unity walk organised by the National Democratic (NDC) over the weekend called for a stakeholders conference to address challenges associated with the implementation of the free SHS policy.
According to him, the NPP is not fulfilling a lot of the promises they made to Ghanaians during the 2016 elections.
