Know your postal or zip code using your state

Postcode, postal code and zip code all mean the same thing. Americans prefer to call it Zip code, while Nigeria & many other countries call it postal code or postcode.

So, if you visit any American website or you’re filling any online form that demands for your zip code just go ahead and use your postal code.

The Nigerian postal code is well structured by the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), with every location having its unique code. The first three digits is determined by your state, while the last three is determined by your local post office.

To know your postcode, just go ahead and click on your state and then your Local Government Area (LGA) to reveal all the postcodes within that LGA; then browse through the tables to find out the postal or zip code of your exact district, ward or location.
