Management of COVID-19 Pandemic and the Deepening Socio-Economic Crises in Nigeria

Olukemi Ajibike Aluko


The Nigerian government was battling with the lingering economic crisis due to high inflation and the drop in revenue from crude oil before the advent of COVID 19 that is ravaging both the social and economic lives of people across the world. This paper examined the efforts of the government at managing the effects of COVID-19 on the deepening socio-economic crisis in Nigeria. This paper relied on secondary sources of data from government briefs and the National Statistics Bureau. It was revealed that the efforts of the government are commendable, but the paucity of funds and the lack of transparency in both finance and administration caused the distrust between the government and the people. The paper concludes that government economic and social palliatives in addressing the socio-economic crisis in the country should be given more media coverage to enable the public to have more access to the information.
