Every state in Nigeria has their various number plate codes. These codes engraved on plate numbers have what they mean.

In our previous posts, we talked about Lagos State, Anambra, Imo, Abia, Ondo, Katsina, and Enugu State number plate codes and what they mean. This time around, we would reveal the meaning of Jigawa State Number Plate Codes.

The first three letters you see on any plate number indicates the Local Government area of registration for the vehicle.





Below are the  number plate codes and what they mean.

GML – Gumel

GRK – Garki

GRM – Gwaram

HJA – Hadejia

BBR – Babura

BKD – Birnin Kudu





BMW – Birniwa

DTU – Dutse

The license plates are generally white, and the number itself is imprinted in blue. The background consists of an outline of a map of Nigeria. The top left corner bears the Nigerian flag or the coat of arm. The state name and slogan is displayed at the top centre of the plate, and the “Federal Republic of Nigeria” is written at the bottom.

The state was created on Tuesday August 27, 1991, when the Federal Military Government under the General Ibrahim Babangida announced the creation of nine additional states in the country.  The economy of Jigawa State is largely characterized by informal sector activities with agriculture as the major economic activity.
