“Ako po ay taospusong humihingi ng paumanhin kung iba ang dating ng aking naikwento,” he said.

According to him, the account that Lapulapu came from Mindanao particularly in Sulu originated from Abraham Ibarani-Idjirani.

“Nabanggit din nang ilang beses ni Pangulong Duterte ito sa kanyang mga talumpati noon,” he said.

Bong Go stressed that he’s ready to “listen and learn based on what the experts of history know.”

“Nais kong klaruhin na buo ang aking respeto sa ating kasaysayan at wala akong intensyong baguhin ang paghanga at paniniwala natin sa buhay ng ating mga bayani,” he said.

Bong Go declared that it was his staff who included the wrong information about Lapulapu during his speech in Mactan, Cebu amid the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Mactan.

Lapulapu led the native forces against Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan who was killed in the said battle.

Jobers Bersales of the University of San Carlos, a Cebu-based anthropologist said there was no other evidence that the first Filipino hero was from other places except Mactan.
