Every state in Nigeria has their various plate number 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, Ogun and Enugu State number plate codes and what they mean. This time around, it’s Kogi state of Nigeria. We would reveal what the codes you see on the number plate actually mean.
The following first three letters you see on any number plate indicates the Local Government area in which the vehicle was registered.
Below are the Kogi state number plate codes and what they mean.
ERE – Yagba West (Odo Ere)
GMN – Adavi (Ogaminana)
AJA – Ajaokuta (Egayan)
BAS – Bassa (Oguma)
DAH – Idah (Idah)
DKN – Dekina (Dekina)
LKJ – Lokoja
KAB – Kabba/Bunu
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.
Kogi state is popularly called the Confluence State because of the confluence of River Niger and River Benue at its capital, Lokoja, which is the first administrative capital of modern-day Nigeria.
