Nigeria Postal Code

(NGSchoolz)

Postal codes in Nigeria are numeric, consisting of six digits.

There are six geopolitical zones in Nigeria, but for the purpose of effective delivery the Nigerian Postal Service divides the country into nine regions; hence, the first digit of the code- (9)

The second and third digits, combined with the first, are the dispatch district for outgoing sorting. While the last three digits represent the delivery location.

However, a delivery location can either be a post office facility, a rural area, or an urban area.

It is important to note that there are no ZIP codes in Nigeria because ZIP codes are only used and available in the United States of America.

So, when required to give a ZIP code just give the postal code of the particular state you stay. But it is always preferable and better to give a postal code.
