The Nigeria Zip/Postal Code Confusion real facts that Nigerians need to know by Saocv(m): Wed Oct 2019 02:45pm
I was filling a form online nd I came across d Zip postal code field, wasn't sure wat to put there so I google naija zip/postal code... for those of us dat had bn confused over this ish here is wat I found out

ZIP (Zone Improvement Plan) codes apply ONLY to the United States . The US does not regard postal codes from other countries as “ZIP” codes. In all other countries, postal codes are used. However, ZIP codes in the US are used for the same purposes for which other countries use postal codes for mailing purposes. So, ZIP codes are to the US while postal
codes are to other countries including
Nigeria.

Nigeria's ZIP / POSTAL code is NOT +234 for all cities and states as most people think- Rather +234 is only the International Dialing Code for Nigerian phone numbers.. example +23470********

Postal codes in Nigeria are numeric, consisting of six digits. NIPOST , the Nigerian Postal Service, divides 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 are for delivery.
The main postal head office in each region will have a postal code ending in 0001, so Garki Main HO in Abuja has the postal code 970001, Ikeja HO in Lagos has 100001, Lokoja in Kogi has 270001 and Port Harcourt has 500001. The lowest postcode is 100001 and the
highest is 930001.

The Nigerian Postal Services still works despite
internet / email and the other Big names in the
Business (DHL, UPS, FEDEX) taking over delivery of
letters and packages faster. They NPS still offer P.O
Box address amongst other services for individuals
and corporations.

You can Visit the New Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) Website http://www.nigeriapostcodes.com to get more info.

It is very important to note that +234 is not actually the postal or Zip code for all the states across the federation. Infact, +234 is only used as the country Zip code.

Below, i have written down the various state Zip code in Nigeria states.

Abuja - 900001

Abia - 440001

Adamawa - 640001

Akwa-Ibom - 520001

Anambra - 420001

Bauchi - 740001

Borno - 600001

Delta - 320001

Edo - 300001

Enugu - 400001

Imo - 460001

Jigawa - 720001

Kano - 700001

Kaduna - 800001

There's so much misplacement of the terms zip code and postal code in Nigeria. People always think zip codes apply to Nigeria. But it's not our fault. We are always browsing American websites and they always ask for zip codes.

And at first, I thought every state made use of the same code; but later, I realized that in most cases it is broken down to Local Government Areas (LGAs) and in some cases, districts.

I stay in Abuja where postal codes is not according to Local Government Areas, but according to Area Councils. I kept searching for Kubwa postcode on Google but didn't find the result I wanted. Little did I know that I was supposed to search for Bwari postcode.

Many postal code sites I noticed did not have a search bar, so browsing through them was quite complicated. I noticed one, though, that has a search bar in its homepage.
