    Late Cong. Teodoro Galagar of the 3rd Congressional District of the Province of Bohol, initiated the creation of Lapining Grande into a town. Aguining, Pitogo and Bonbonon were the barangays bidding for township. Pitogo has more of the ideal features of a safe port and nearer Ubay and Cebu.

Eight years later on November 4, 1997, its name was changed to Pres. Carlos P.
