Nigeria is a country of nearly 200 million people, many of which are always interested in shipping one parcel or the other. For this reason, there are several post offices to meet our shipment needs.

Popular companies like FedEx, DHL, etc. could deliver your mails/items to your doorstep. However, you must be very careful when filling in your postal code on any website. Reason is, if you miss just one figure you may experience delivery delays.

If you’ve ever needed to make use of EMS/Parcel delivery company, then I’m sure you understand what I mean.

Before we begin to reveal the various digits, for each state, we’ll look at some very important points.

Are Nigeria Postal Code, Nigeria Postcode And Nigeria Zip Code The same thing?

To clear the confusion, In Nigeria it is officially called postal code or postcode. If you visit any website that requests for Nigeria zip code, just go ahead and provide your postal code. Postal code, zip code, and postcode all mean the same thing. In fact some countries even call it PINCODE.

Chances are you’ll come across websites requesting for Nigeria Zip code. The reason to this is that most of them are American websites, which prefer to call it zip code.

Does the whole Nigeria use the same postal code?

Nigeria as a country is made up of 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Each of the 36 states has several local Government Areas (LGAs). To cut the long story short, all of those Local Government Areas and sometimes the towns within them make use of unique postal codes. In other words, the entire Nigeria doesn’t use the same postal code.

Therefore, while browsing through our list of postal code for the Nigerian States and the FCT, click on those states to reveal the LGAs within them and their postal codes.

Note that the postal code you see in the table below is for the post office headquarters within their respective states.

If you don’t want your parcel/EMS mailed to the post office headquarters in your state, then click on your state to find the postal code assigned to your LGA. Because, as we’ve earlier said, almost all Local Government Areas in Nigeria have their unique post office and postal code.
