My sojourn ended up being one in astounding futility. Never did I imagine that there wasn’t such a word as “estacode” in the entire English dictionary. It is purely as a Nigerian connotation. Apparently the word ‘estacode” is an acronym for “Establishment Code” which was like a set of rules and guidelines for the public service in countries colonized by the British. Establishment Code is still being used in countries like Pakistan and India but not in the Nigerian sense of it.
In Nigeria, “Estacode” refers to a form of travel allowance given to government officials. As usual we’ve left out the entire meaning of the word in making up an acronym. Next time you hear this word remember it is purely a Nigerian lingua liken to broken English.
