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, Jigawa, Ondo, Katsina, and Enugu State number plate codes and what they mean. This time around, we would reveal the meaning of Zamfara 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.
ANK – Anka
BKA – Bakura
BKM – Bukkuyum
BUG – Bungudu
GMM – Gumi
GUS – Gusau
KRN – Kaura-Namoda
BMJ – Birnin Magaji
MRD – Maradun
MRR – Shinkafi

The license plates are generally white, and the number itself is of blue imprint. 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 area today called Zamfara state was one of the old Hausa city-states like Kano, Katsina, Gobir, Kabi and Zazzau. The people of Zamfara have over the years struggled for autonomy, it was not until 1996 that the then military administration of the Late General Sani Abacha detached the Zamfara State from Sokoto State.
