How to Know the Correct Postal Code of Your Area in Nigeria

nigeria postal codes

Are you filling a form online and you got stuck, when you are ask to provide the postal code or zip code of your country, ease your self today's tutorial will help you on how to get that.
According to my recent finding, here in Nigeria many of us do mistakely use the nigerian international calling code " +234 " when we are ask to provide the postal or zip code. You don't have to use the calling code in place of the postal code, it's wrong, the postal or zip code is totally different from the calling code, calling or dailing code as the name implies normally it's a three digit code usually used for long distance calling, while a postal or zip code helps people to easily locate you.
Anytime you find yourself filling a form, maybe purchasing goods and services on the internet, it is very important to give the correct postal or zip code of your area, failure to do that can lead to the delay of the goods or services you bought.

On another note, people do normally use this " 00176-0000 " as our postal code, it's wrong, here in nigeria, the postal varies depending on your area, and locality, so their is nothing like a general postal code for all the areas in nigeria.
So how can i know the correct postal code of my area? It very simple just visit Nigeria Postal Service
Scroll down under a sub heading " Online Tools " click on`Postcode finder ` it will take you to another page where it will help you get your post code.
Around the Menu area, you will see Urban Postcode Search and Rural Postcode Search click on the one that tally with your area, depending on whether you are living in the Urban or Rural area.
After that you will be ask to choose your state (the one you are living in) Town, Area and Street name after providing all this infomation click on the " Get Postcode " button it will show you the postal code and all the Street using it.

Cheers!!!
