Toussaint L'Ouverture
François-Dominique Toussaint Louverture
Toussaint Louverture
(French: [fʁɑ̃swa dɔminik tusɛ̃ luvɛʁtyʁ] 20 May 1743 – 7 April 1803), also known as Toussaint L'Ouverture or Toussaint Bréda, was the best-known leader of the Haitian Revolution.[6] His military and political acumen saved the gains of the first Black insurrection in November 1791. He first fought for the Spanish against the French; then for France against Spain and Great Britain; and finally, for Saint-Domingue against Napoleonic France. He then helped transform the insurgency into a revolutionary movement, which by 1800 had turned Saint-Domingue, the most prosperous slave colony of the time, into the first free colonial society to have explicitly rejected race as the basis of social ranking. Though Louverture did not sever ties with France, his actions in 1800 constituted a de facto autonomous colony

Lagos-Badagry Expressway
The Badagry Expressway is the local name for the Nigerian section of the Trans–West African Coastal Highway.[1] The expressway connects Lagos, Nigeria with Dakar, Senegal. Extensive reconstruction of the Lagos portion of the expressway began in 2010.[1][2] When those renovations are completed the Lagos portion of the expressway will be widened from four lanes to ten lanes for road vehicles and a new mass transit line will operate in the median. Two of the expressway's lanes are intended to be exclusively used by the Lagos Bus Rapid Transit System.[3] References[edit]^ a b Olasunkanmi Akoni (2013-04-23). "Lagos-Badagry Expressway: Unending reconstruction, unending agony". Vanguard magazine. Retrieved 2013-06-15. Despite the fact that the road is an international route that links Nigeria with other West African countries starting with Benin Republic, it has been abandoned by concerned authorities.  ^ Odinaka Mbonu (2013-02-26)
