The Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia South said Mahama has no moral right to be criticising the NPP governmnet especially on 'Free SHS'.

He said, "While in office, he never bought one text for any school. Ask him where his policy document or guideline for his progressive free SHS…there was nothing like that. You were not able to do it in your time and now that we are capably doing it, you are complaining."
