Sort Codes of all Commercial Banks in Nigeria

In one of our posts, we made a list of all the commercial banks in Nigeria. We also talked about the social media handles of all commercial banks in Nigeria. For this post, we are going to be listing out all the sort codes of these banks. To begin with, am sure a lot us of must have seen or heard about sort code, but do we actually know what it means and why they are there. For starters, a sort code is typically a bank code which is used to enable money transfers between banks. Every commercial bank in Nigeria has its own Sort code.

Most times, you will be required to provide this code in other to do a specific transaction. Especially when you are transferring money from an account in one bank to another account in a different bank. The sort code is a 9 digit number that is usually at the bottom of a cheque leaf. The first three digits represent the bank codes, the next digit identifies the location while the last 5 digits signify the branch. Listing out all the sort codes for each bank branch will be a little too much. Thus, we are only going to be listing the sort codes of the headquarters of each bank.
