Member of Parliament for Odododiodoo, Hon.  Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuije in an interview with Bola Ray on an Accra based Starr 103.5FM has revealed that his party, National Democratic Party adopted the term "comfortable lead" so to cool and calm supporters in the heat of election result collation.

“Let me say that it was strategic. I’ve come to see that it was strategic. We have what we call the boomerang effect; when the expectations of people are so high, if you are not careful and you don’t manage the expectation, and their frustration comes in, they could vent.”

‘We’re in a comfortable lead’ is to “assuage the frustration of the supporters. [It was] to minimise their frustration because the anger that would have come with the straight [admittance] that we have lost, people would have committed suicide,” he said.

The out-going sports minister, added: “Even with this, we have reports of people committing suicide. Yes, I’ve heard of about three across the country. People could just not stand it… Even me, I broke down.”
