Postal Code for Anambra State Nigeria

Anambra State, known as the “Light of the Nation,” is a key player in Nigeria’s South Eastern region, founded in 1991. Home to urban hubs like Onitsha, Okpoko town, Ogbaru, Nnewi, and the capital city, Awka, the state is divided into 21 local governments. The postal code system is managed by the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST), which makes mail delivery across the state faster.

The postal code system categorizes towns, streets, and communities with numeric combinations assigned by NIPOST. This system ensures mail delivery, with distinct codes for different local governments and a separation of urban and rural areas.

Anambra State Zip Code

In Nigeria, each state including Anambra has its own unique postal code, and it’s not a one-size-fits-all 6-digit number like ZIP codes in some other places. The Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST) is in charge of assigning specific codes to different areas. These codes make it simple to identify parcels, whether they’re coming from within the country or from overseas.

When you come across a space in an online form asking for a ZIP code, don’t worry! You can use your postal code; they mean the same thing. We’ve talked before about the difference between postal and ZIP codes, and here’s a quick reminder: in Nigeria, we mainly use the term “postal code” for this kind of identification.
