Early trends from the Nigerian presidential elections favoured Moshood Abiola, candidate of the centre-left Social Democratic Party (SDP), sources close to the National Election Commission said, AFP reports from Lagos.

The trends, from 14 of the 30 states in the federation, confirmed Mr Abiola's lead in traditional SDP strongholds, but also showed him gaining ground in several areas held by the rival centre-right National Republican Convention.
