Zip code is a group of five or nine numbers which are added to a postal address to assist the sorting of mail and delivery of goods within and outside a particular region.

A mistaken or incorrect Nigeria zip code can cause your goods, letters and parcels to get missing or delayed in delivery, but with a correct zip code, your goods or documents will get to you faster and without issues.

It's unfortunate that many Nigerians don't know and can't say their state postal code by heart. Some even say that it's not necessary anymore since no one is sending letters again because of the introduction GSM in the country. But the truth is this; it goes beyond sending of letters as you really need the postal codes if you have any dream of doing business online or even enrolling in some courses.

Contrary to the popular misconceptions, all the areas in Nigeria do not have the same zip code, the popular number “234: used as Zip code for Nigeria is wrong, It is the phone dialing code for Nigeria.

ZIP stands for Zone Improvement Plan. The USPS (United States Postal Service) just as NIPOST (Nigeria Postal service) has codes for overseas countries, which are used when handling deliveries. These codes are equivalent to the ZIP codes used within the US.
