The world was taken by surprise at the dawn of the Corona Virus Pandemic. Every sector in every nation of the world is being affected, although some were quick to adjust to the new normal, while others are still lost as to what to do. The pandemic created a unique system of doing things and a new life style. Nigeria like most African nations were among those greatly affected by the pandemic. A probe into the health sector and the leadership style in Nigeria will bring to light the devastating nature of the health system. Drawing from secondary data, the paper seeks to answer the question: what is responsible for the deploring nature of the health system. The thrust of the paper is that leadership style is pivotal in solving the health crises in Nigeria. The paper therefore recommends, democratic leadership as the way out.
