The Correct Zip Codes to be used in Nigeria including the correct State codes

What's the definition of Zip Code or Postal code:

From My Dictionary definition of Postal Code or Zip Code it means:

*.A sequence of lettersand/or numbers added to a postal address to aid the sorting and delivery of post/mail.

Usage notes*.

This seems to be used as a generic term to include any of the official codes established by postal services intended to facilitate mail delivery.

*.Within a country many speakers may use the name of the national postal code (such as"zip code" or"postcode") to refer to any such code, even if it is the postal code of a foreign or local postal service.

Zip code is always a required field when filling Job Application forms or any other form online.

Many people make the mistake of filling 234 as Nigeria Zip code, this is not correct.
 The Correct Zip Codes to be used in Nigeria including the correct State codes

ZIP (Zone Improvement Plan) codes apply to the United State only.

234 that many regard as Nigeria zipcode is actually the international dialing code for Nigerian phone numbers What is used for other countries is Post Code.                                                                                           The code serve the same function in different both US and non-US states. Show me the Nigeria zip code Whenever you are prompted to fill in the zip code for Nigeria;

Enugu state zip code or zip code for Imo, you don't need any Nigeria zip code finder. What you should use are: 110001, 23401 or 00176.

Any of these codes should work. So when anyone ask for Nigeria zip code list, what you should give is a list of all Nigeria postal codes for different states.

In essence Nigeria postal zipcode, Nigeria zip code and postal code mean the same thing.

A code which was established by the United States Postal Service, for the purposes of identifying a location and routing them a ilto that location.

A zip code was originally 5 digits long, and now has been expanded to 9 digits for more detailed identification.

The 5 digit zip code is still sufficient for sending all items of mail; the 9 digit zip code is used primarily by businesses as they sometimes get a discount for doing so.

Zip code stands for 'Zoning Improvement Plan' codeThe list of all Nigeria's post codes.
