What is the Postal Code and Zip code?

The terms “postal code” and “zip code” are often used interchangeably, but they have distinct meanings. A postal code is a series of numbers or a combination of numbers and letters that help postal departments and courier services determine the precise location and region where mail must be delivered. On the other hand, a zip code is a similar system used primarily in the United States. In Nigeria, including Borno State, the term “postal code” is more commonly used.
