Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, utilises postal codes to ensure efficient mail and package delivery.

This guide provides a comprehensive overview of Abuja's postal code system, including its structure and a breakdown by local government areas (LGAs).

Postal codes are numerical codes used to identify specific geographic areas within a country. These codes help in sorting and delivering mail by indicating precise locations. In Lagos, as in many other cities, postal codes are important for efficient mail distribution, helping postal services and couriers deliver items quickly and accurately.

Abuja's postal codes consist of six digits. The first digit signifies the designated region (Abuja in this case), and the remaining digits progressively narrow down the location, reaching specific districts and sometimes even streets. For instance, the code "900221" indicates the Three Arms Zone district.

Abuja is comprised of six Area Councils, each with its own postal code zones. Here's a breakdown of postal codes by LGA:
