Lagos – The United States would be willing to work with the candidate that would emerge as winner of the presidential election, Ambassador James Entwistle said.

Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammadu Buhari of the People’s Democratic Party and All Progressives Congress respectively are the frontrunners.

“We look forward to working with whatever government emerges from the election,” Entwistle said after elections were held in the continent’s biggest country by population.

He hailed the conduct of voters during the election period.

He observed the election in Abuja, the capital.

 “I was impressed by the dedication and patience of voters. They were inspirational.”

Entwistle lauded the use of the permanent voter card in Nigeria’s general election.

He said the card was more technologically-advanced than the one used in his home country.

“I am impressed by the decision of Independent National Electoral Commission to use technology in this election. The Permanent Voter Cards are very high-tech,” said Entwistle.

“The cards are more high tech than my voter card from the state of Virginia in the US. My voter card does not have biometric. It does not have my fingerprint. The high-tech gives the process more integrity.”
