This is a Niger coast full cover (not only a front) , but the back was glued to be stuck on a parcel.

The address and stamps are on it, but can it still be considered a cover, since it wasn't used as one but more like an address label?

Since the envelope is still pretty much intact, I would think that it is still a cover, regardless of how it was used.

A nice cover and an interesting dilemma. I agree with Phil that it should be called a cover. When you write it up, make a note that it was stuck onto a parcel.

Does it appear to have been used only as a label for the package, or was there a letter inside?

Yes , it does appear to have been used only as a label for the package.
The cover cannot be opened, seem that some glue came trough and the back and front are stucked.
I will follow your opinion to call it Cover, and make a note that it was stuck onto a parcel.

Thank you all.

Based on the cut of the flaps on the back side, I would call it "cover, significantly reduced at right, previously attached to parcel". Enough has been trimmed that one or more stamps may be absent now. Being an envelope, rather than a label, there was almost certainly a letter or invoice within. I suspect it was trimmed and glued shut afterwards by a collector to "restore" its appearance.
