On April 12, 2014, 9:16 a.m., the Philippine Cooperators Page (the official Fan Page of the Cooperative Development Authority) posted on Facebook:

"..Sir Ver Vasquez, the HRD for CDA is just part and parcel of the HRD Program of CDA.  We can only give to the Coop Sector what we have.

In our desire to give to the sector and other relevant stakeholders the kind of services that are expected of our men and women, we must capacitate first our people the appropriate technology, knowledge and skills thru the learning sessions.

The internal HRD is the means to do so not only in the areas of knowledge building and skills enhancement but also in fortifying the sprit de corps and motivations of the officials and personnel.

With the 3 HRDs that we have conducted in the past plus the two tracks of Enhancement Training, we can say that our people are now ready to put to life the constitutionally enshrined duty of CDA of making cooperatives as practical vehicles towards achieving sustainable economic development, social justice and equity.

Likened to a War...combating poverty is an up or down battle.  We can not afford to send an ill-prepared army to that battle.

In our last HRD, we made it sure that skeletal forces were left to man every office of CDA to attend to needs of office callers.  We took advantage of the technology to monitor the activities in all offices, and what our skeletal offices are doing, while the rest of the work force were attending HRD.  

 Again, we are minding the store."

Yeah, right you are minding the store. CDA has only 544 employees, of which 521 were reported by CDA to be at the 5-day HRD program in Subic. That leaves 23 personnel, equivalent to less than 1.5 persons left in each of the 16 CDA Regional Offices. Yes, that is truly and literally a skeletal force, as CDA termed it. Who were absent during the period? The skeletal force may well be a ghostly force. A ghostly force minding the store. That's funny.
