Nigeria’s Postal Code: A Numerical Code Consisting of Six Digits, Equivalent to ZIP Code or Postcode. The Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) has implemented a systematic structure for postal codes in Nigeria. Each location within the country is assigned a distinctive code consisting of six digits. Unlike certain countries that incorporate alphabets into their postal or zip codes, Nigeria employs a uniform format of six-digit numerical codes across all regions.

In Nigeria, the terms “ZIP Code,” “Postcode,” and “Postal Code” are interchangeable when referring to the country’s code system. The Nigerian Postal Code is a six-digit numeric code widely used for postal purposes throughout the nation.

Nigeria’s lowest Postal Code is 100001, assigned to Ikeja, Lagos Metropolitan in Lagos State. On the other hand, the highest Postal Code is 982112, designated for Mbara in Vandeikya, Benue State.
