He made the call during a meeting with members of the Nigerian Medical Association at the State House in Abuja.
The President urged others contemplating strikes to opt for settlement of issues by negotiation, no matter how long it takes.
According to a Media Aide of the President, Garba Shehu, the President also said that debts genuinely owed Health workers will be settled.
He said the present administration has a good track record of paying all debts owed to government workers, pensioners, and contractors.
