Nigeria Postal Codes for All 36 States in Nigeria

The Nigerian postal code is an indicator you use when you’re about to get mail, packages, or parcels delivered to your address. Most times, people make use of postal codification and zip codes to handle their deliveries and mails, but countries such as the USA, and others only make use of zip codes while other countries stick to postal codes, and for countries like Nigeria, both terms refer to one and the same.

In Nigeria, there are six geopolitical zones, and each area comes with a long history and a complicated background. During President Ibrahim Babangida’s tenure, the government came up with a relatively convenient system to cater to the allocation of human resources. One of these systems was the post-delivery. It allowed people get the possibility of shipping, ordering new products, cosmetics, clothing items, and more.

At this moment, the post departments get a lot of parcels, and each parcel requires appropriate shipping and maximum attention, but how do the workers deal with this high influx of mail without ever mixing it up? The postal codes are the secrets that help them never mix up a delivery.
