Nigeria's two political parties agreed to form an interim government that apparently excludes Moshood Abiola, the businessman who won the 12 June presidential election, AP reports from Lagos.

The Social Democrats of Mr Abiola, ordered by the military to meet the rival Republicans or face dissolution, agreed on a plan to form an interim government to replace the military regime of General Ibrahim Babangida.
