BRP Ang Pangulo docks in Zamboanga City! Mayor Climaco, students visit ship


Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco has toured the presidential yacht, BRP Ang Pangulo, which docked in the city’s port.

Joining the mayor Monday, March 2, were City Police Office Director Col. Joseph Martir and students from the Tetuan Central School.

Skippered by Commander Marissa Martinez, BRP Ang Pangulo dropped anchor at the local port Saturday, February 29, for refueling and has been opened for public viewing upon instructions of presidential daughter Davao Mayor Sarah Duterte, the city government said.

The 61-year old ship, acquired during the time of President Carlos Garcia, has a mini museum featuring photos and memorabilia of Philippine presidents dating back 1969.

President Rodrigo Duterte has converted the ship into an auxiliary command ship which serves as an extension of Malacañang and can be the President’s office anytime the need arises.
