Wpływ Covid-19 na całe życie społeczne Nigerii, podobnie jak w innych państwach, jest olbrzymi a jego pełne następstwa nie są jeszcze możliwe do określenia. Działania elit politycznych Nigerii w walce z pandemią Covid-19 sprawiły, że całe życie społeczne Nigerii zostało zatrzymane. Przedmiotem badań opisanych w niniejszym artykule jest problem zarządzania walką z pandemią Covid-19 oraz to, jakie następstwa miały działania władz Nigerii dla wzrostu gospodarczego i możliwości osiągnięcia celów zrównoważonego rozwoju społeczeństwa Nigerii. Wychodząc od teorii związku przyczynowego Davida Hume'a, badanie pokazuje, że nieskuteczność nigeryjskich elit politycznych w walce z pandemią Covid-19 miała znaczący, negatywny wpływ na rozwój gospodarczy oraz na zrównoważony rozwój Nigerii.

The impact of the novel Covid-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus on the entire spectrum of Nigeria's national life, as elsewhere, remains yet indelibly unquantifiable at present. Thanks to the Elite culpability in the management of the coronavirus epidemic that has now rendered the entire Nigeria's national life halted and, on the brinks of spontaneous discontinuity. Conceptualized in this study to mean negligence of duty, this study unpacks how the Nigerian political Elites and leadership's inefficiency has contributed inversely to the eventual outbreak, sporadic rise and the negative consequences of Covid-19 on the entire populations' Nigeria's economic and sustainable development goals. Drawing from David Hume's theory of causation, this study discovers that leadership and Nigerian political elites' failure in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic, before and during its eventual outbreak and manifestation in Nigeria triggered the incident Covid-19 case in Nigeria, and its manifold effects on Nigeria's prospects for the actualization of her economic and sustainable development pursuits.
