Full List of Lagos Postal Codes for Administrative Divisions and LGAs

Postal codes are very important in countries of the world, both civilized and third-world countries. They are a set of characters that can come in numerical or alphanumerical order, with punctuations or spaces primarily used in sorting mails. Bringing it down to Lagos State in Nigeria that has 20 local government areas, postal codes (or zip codes) can be put to many uses and serves several purposes in mail sorting, in the location of the specific regions, in delivery of packages, and many more. For this piece, we are set to x-ray Lagos postal codes, including other fine details.

What are Postal Codes?

The words postal codes can be replaced with several other names – post-code, postcode, ZIP Code, or PIN Code. ZIP code is a series of characters that can be numerical (occurring in just numbers) or alphanumerical (occurring in both numbers and digits). Sometimes, Post-codes can also include some punctuations or even spaces and they are primarily assigned for the purpose of mail sorting. However, they can still come in handy for several other purposes as will be explained in this piece. Geographical areas of each country are usually assigned postal codes but it is not strange to see institutions or individual addresses that receive large mails being assigned special codes. Good examples of this include large commercial companies or government agencies.

Given the same number of characters, a system that is alphanumeric is capable of encoding many more locations. For instance, a two-digit numeric code will not be able to represent more than 100 locations, however, the case is different for a two-character alphanumeric code – with twenty letters and ten numbers it can comfortably represent 900 locations.

Assigning Postal Codes For Lagos

With ZIP codes or postal codes, it is easy for people to identify different locations in any state or country even if you are a tourist and a newcomer. Also, navigating different parts of any city can be accomplished without much stress and for those who wish to go on visits to any particular area, arming yourself with the relevant code goes a long way in easing the process. In Nigeria, the post office is charged with the responsibility of giving out ZIP codes to different states and for Lagos, the code assigned to its head post is different from the ones given to each of the areas.

The 20 local government areas of Lagos are categorized into a couple of sub-divisions – metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas. It is these two broad headings that are then used in structuring the Lagos ZIP code in each area.

ZIP codes are very important especially in the civilized world like the United Kingdom, The United States, Canada, and more where they can be put to several uses. Even in developing countries, postal codes serve quite a good number of purposes. Get some of the key uses of Postcodes below

  • Mail Services – this happens to be the major use of the postcode. With the code, postal workers can easily tell where a package or letter is going. In civilized countries like the US, before you can mail a parcel, it is compulsory that you write the zip code visibly in the address.
  • Delivery Services – people who work in the delivery services leverage ZIP codes for internal routing of the packages they receive; this makes their work a whole lot easier.
  • Statistics – Zip codes are useful in gathering statistics. For instance, the US can boast of over 42000 ZIP Codes.
  • Marketing – ZIP Codes can also be used for the purpose of marketing. The stores will always ask for a customer’s zip code because, when it is combined with other info like your name and credit card, it reveals additional info about the customer from the commercial databases. This information can be sold to data brokers who will in turn sell them to other marketers.
  • Legislative Districts – The ZIP Codes also come in handy for the purpose of legislation
  • Internet Purposes – ZIP codes are usually found under most eCommerce or education website registration pages.
  • Credit Card Security – Credit card authorization is something that can be achieved with codes
  • Insurance Rating – there are insurance carriers that use zip codes in determining the rate a customer will receive.
