The Nigerian Postal Service which is responsible for providing postal services in Nigeria divided the country into nine regions, which make up the first digit of the code. The second and third digits combined with the first, are the dispatch district for outgoing sorting. The last three digits represent the delivery location which can be any of the following; a post office facility, a rural area, or an urban area.

The postal head office in every region has its’s code that ends with 0001 and the lowest postcode is 100001 while the highest postcode is 982002. For Instance, Ikeja HQ in Lagos is 100001; The postal code for Nigeria as a country is 23401.
