Iso 3166-2:ng

ISO 3166-2:NG is the entry for codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Nigeria, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 1 capital district and 36 states. The Federal Capital Territory contains the capital of the country Abuja and has special status equal to the states.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is NG, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Nigeria. The second part is two letters.
