William Ruto Wins Kenya's Elections;John Mahama Must Retire-Who Wins Ghana's 2024 Polls; Reactions

In Kenya, the presidential election has finally been concluded after several days of counting.

Interestingly, the outcome has been declared by the Electoral Commission but it seems there is an ongoing drama as the opposition is threatening to seek an appeal at the court.

The opposition leader has contested the presidential elections three different times but has failed to become the president.

Unluckily for Raila Odinga, the current vice president or deputy president, William Ruto has won the popular votes as per the declaration by the Electoral Commission. Many people have called for the retirement of Raila Odinga after this very 'defeat'. Whether he would accept defeat and retire is a discussion for another day.

In Ghana, the New Patriotic Party seeks to break the eight years or two terms just like the case of Kenya. Can what happened in Kenya be replicated in Ghana? Who stands a better chance of breaking the eight for the NPP? Does John Mahama stand a chance of winning the NPP or does he need to resign after a 2024 popular defeat?

Many Ghanaians have indicated that John Alan Kyeremanteng would find it difficult to win the NPP primaries if he does not break away from government affairs as immediate as he can. Would resigning early help him to start an early campaign?

The bitter truth, however, is that if the NPP is to replicate what happened in Kenya, then it means John Mahama would lose against a formidable Dr Bawumia.

The excitement from some sections of Ghanaians towards the outcome of Kenya's elections has been overwhelming as they see a clear victory for Vice President Dr Bawumia.

Would the outcome of Kenya's elections affect the politics in Ghana? Who stands an easy chance of winning the 2024 elections?

What are your thoughts on the ongoing discussion? Are there any strategies to learn from William Ruto? Should Raila Odinga resign?
