Mr A
Here are the valid zip codes for Nigeria for use in filling online postal forms.

You are probably reading this because you have been presented with either an extensive registration form or a delivery bill which contains a field for your country / destination. Here's a little background on what the ZIP code is.

ZIP codes are a system of postal codes used by the United States Postal Service (USPS) since 1963. The term ZIP, an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan, was chosen to suggest that the mail travels more efficiently, and therefore more quickly (zipping along), when senders use the code in the postal address.

That was from wikipedia. So you see, the term "ZIP code" applies to the United States only. For other countries, the term "Postal code" is used. But both terms are commonly used interchangeably since they typically serve the same purpose (mailing).

Postal codes are more generic and can be used if the delivery originates form any other country outside the US. The postal code for nigeria is 110001 or 23401 or 00176. If you notice the 00176 is the zip code for Nigeria assigned by the US and used by the US while the others are global postal codes for Nigeria.
