DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Two Philippine-made vessels named after "unheralded" heroes were commissioned here on Thursday, December 21.

President Rodrigo Duterte and Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol led the commissioning of vessels Lapu-Lapu and Francisco Dagohoy. Both vessels are classified as Barko ng Republika ng Pilipinas (BRP) or ships of the Republic of the Philippines.

The ships, according to Piñol, would join the 16-vessel fleet of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in the fight against illegal fishing. They can also be used to respond during disasters and to transport food.

2 Visayan heroes 'elevated'

A delighted President addressed the crowd at the Sasa Wharf.

At last, said Duterte, two historical figures of Visayan descent have been "elevated," with the ships named after them.

"I've always been wondering eternally and complaining also. No offense intended to anybody, Filipino man tayong lahat (we're all Filipinos). Bakit kaming mga Bisaya walang hero (Why don't the Visayan people have a hero) in the roll of our national heroes?" the President said.
