What Is the Difference between Zip Code & Postal codes?
The terms “postcode,” “postal code,” and “zip code” are all one and the same. In the United States, it is referred to as a ZIP code, however in Nigeria and many other countries, it is referred to as a postal code or postcode.
So, if you’re visiting an American website or filling out an online form that asks for your zip code, use your postal code instead.
The Nigerian Postal Service “NIPOST” has a well-organized postal code system, with each place having its own code. Your state determines the first three digits, while your local post office determines the last three.
According to NIPOST, Nigeria is divided into nine areas, with the first digit of the code representing each of them. Outgoing sorting dispatch district is determined by adding the second and third numbers to the first. Your local post office determines the last three digits, which represent the delivery location. A post office building, a rural area, or an urban area can all be considered delivery locations.
Simply click on your state, then your Local Government Area (LGA), to show all the postcodes inside that LGA; then explore the tables to find the postal or zip code of your precise district, ward, or location.
