Abuja Postal Code: Clear the Confusion!

Postal codes, also known as Post codes, are a series of numbers (or in some countries, letters) which is used for sorting out mails.

Nigeria makes use of numeric post codes. The entire country is divided into nine different regions. The first digit of the code signifies the region under which an area falls. The second and third digits signify the dispatch district while the last three digits are for dispatch.

For instance, Abuja falls under region nine therefore any postcode for Abuja must begin with number ‘9’. The last three digits would then signify the exact dispatch area.
