A Swiss national, popularly referred to as the ‘Swiss Butcher’ in Jos, Walter Fehlmann has called on the Plateau State government to as a matter of urgency engage youths across the state in road repairs and management.

Fehlmann, a cattle rearer and the Chief Executive Officer of Felak Trading Enterprises, a fattening project which evolved into a full meat processing industry known as Felak Meat, said with little mobilization and equipment, unemployed youths could be mobilized to engage in filling potholes on various roads in the state.

Speaking with Benue Plateau Chronicle, Fehlmann, who was crippled following a road accident along Gold and Base junction in Kwang-hei community, Jos South, said his painful experience made it imperative for him to create awareness on safe motoring and the need for government to engage youths in road repairs.

“Some of the youths are already engaging themselves in putting bad roads into motorable shapes and they do that as a means of survival,” the Swiss national, who has lived in Nigeria for over 50 years, said.

Recalling his experience, Fehlmann, who has been on a wheel chair since the accident, six years ago, said he had spent over N10 million for medical treatment and has sued a construction company for leaving a pavement in the middle of the road which resulted in various road crashes.

He thanked the Rotary Club of Jos which last week erected a warning sign on that dangerous spot that resulted in his accident six years ago.
