Whats is the difference between Zip and Postal Codes?
The United States Postal Service (UPS) uses ZIP Codes to distribute mails. ZIP is an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan. However, they are not called Zip Codes in Nigeria – and in all of the British Commonwealth (all nations that were colonized by Great Britain). Instead, they are known as Postal Codes.
Both zip code and postal code however essentially mean the same thing – an alphanumeric number assigned to different locations in a country. The numbers enable the post office to precisely target locations where it delivers mails around a locality. Therefore when anyone adds Zip or Postal Codes to their home or postal addresses, mails will be delivered faster and more efficiently as the Code pinpoints an exact location within a country.
Does every location in Nigeria have a code then? The answer is yes! Consequently, every community in the 774 local government council areas of Nigeria has a Postal Code. The Nigerian Postal Service has done a tremendous job of putting every village in Nigeria on the postal map.

Enugu businesses advertise wrong postal codes
Now, with this issue cleared, do you sometimes wonder what is the postal code for your location in Enugu metropolis? Unfortunately, many businesses in Enugu are advertising the wrong codes – you don’t have to write it if you’re not sure! I have seen a business located in Independence Layout write it’s postal code as 400221! As soon as I read that, my mind said, “No sir, that’s not correct. The correct code is 400271.”
Bloggers also copy and paste wrong postal codes
However, note that there are many unscrupulous individuals trying to copy and paste the authentic Nigeria Post Office directory of Postal Codes and hosting them online as their own creation. Thus, it’s probably from these unofficial websites that many people copy the wrong codes for their businesses.
Who owns the land in Enugu Metropolis?
The Enugu metropolitan area is made up of three local Government Areas – Enugu North (the Coal City), Enugu South and Enugu East. Thus, tracing the city from its original ancestry, Enugu South is Ntuegbe Land (although many wrongly ascribe it to Nkanu), while Enugu East is Nike ancestral land. Enugu North is shared between Ogui Nike (the original inhabitants) and Ngwo (from Udi clan) which claimed farmlands in the northern part of the metropolis.
However, Nigeria’s Land Use Act vests all land in the 36 states with the Governors – to hold in trust for the people. In addition, the Act empowers Governors to acquire individual and community land for development that is “in the public interest.”
