Lagos State Postal Codes: All the Zip Codes For Local Governments and Wards

Lagos State postal codes are the numerical codes assigned to all the districts in the state for easy delivery of mails and packages. Also known as PIN or ZIP codes in various English-speaking countries, postal codes are a series of letters or digits or both, sometimes, including spaces or punctuation, included in a postal address for the purpose of sorting mail.

Postal codes were initiated by the Post Office Department to handle increasing mail volumes by categorizing Nigeria into well-defined areas. In addition to identifying locations, Postal codes have become social identifiers. They give information on the demographics of the people of a particular region. Companies also make major marketing decisions, including closing or opening stores, launching new products or services, and pivoting sales data into regions.

Lagos State, a region located in the southwestern geopolitical zone of Nigeria, was created on May 27, 1967, under the State Creation and Transitional Provision Decree No. 14 of 1967, which effectively restructured Nigeria’s federation into twelve states. Nine years after creating Lagos State, Ikeja was made the capital of the state, while the federal capital was later moved to Abuja in 1991 – during the regime of Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida.

How Nigeria’s Postal Codes Works

Nigeria as a country has no general postal code. Instead, the Nigerian postal service produced codes consisting of six digits assigned by the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST). The postal service divided the country into nine regions which make up the first digit of the code. Each of the nine regions is represented with the first number, while the second and third digits make up the dispatch district for sorting when combined with the first. For instance, Lagos and Ogun states are Number 1, while Abuja, Niger, Nasarawa, and Benue State are number 9. Hence, you would see Lagos postal code being 100001 while Abuja is in the ninth region with the postal code 900001.

NIPOST head office in every region has a postal code that ends with 0001. For Instance, Ikeja headquarters in Lagos is 100001; the lowest postcode is 100001 while the highest postcode is 982002.
