From his early involvement in politics to his remarkable achievements, Hon. Wakili has proven to be a dedicated advocate for democracy and a true representative of the people.
A Strong Foundation: Roots of Honour and Nobility
Hon. Haruna Wakili hails from a family deeply rooted in the business and caravan leadership of Kano, specifically
the esteemed Madugu Tanko na Gago lineage of the late 18th and 19th centuries. With a background in
business, Hon. Wakili combines his entrepreneurial acumen with his passion for grassroots politics. He firmly
believes that true progress and development can only be attained through the democratic process, a philosophy
that guides his political career.
In paying homage to his late father, Kabiru Haruna Sanka, Hon. Wakili emphasizes the significance of ancestral
heritage. He regards his father’s lineage, the Agalawa clan on his paternal side, and the Wangarawa clan, credited
with introducing Islam to Kano, on his maternal side, as testimonies to his pure and humble background.
Additionally, he proudly acknowledges his mother’s direct lineage to the Yolawa Fulani clan from Tofa local
government, particularly the Lambu ancestry. It is the fusion of aristocratic blood, royal lineage, and the blessings
of Almighty Allah that have propelled him to his current position.
A Political Journey: From Early Involvement to Exemplary Leadership
Hon. Haruna Wakili’s foray into politics began unofficially at the tender age of eleven, during General Sani Abacha’s unsuccessful attempt to reintroduce democracy in 1996. However, it was in 2003, upon reaching the age of eighteen, that he officially joined the defunct ANPP (All Nigeria Peoples Party). His deep-rooted patriotism and admiration for General Muhammadu Buhari‘s presidential candidacy propelled him to become a staunch loyalist of every party General Buhari affiliated with. This unwavering dedication and support have shaped him into a grassroots politician par excellence.
In a groundbreaking achievement, Hon. Wakili became the youngest State Party Chairman and Director General of the Campaign Council of ADC’s (African Democratic Congress) 2019 candidate, HE Salisu Mubarak Muhammad. This milestone, achieved at the age of thirty-three on December 1st, 2018, demonstrated his exceptional leadership skills. He established a robust organizational structure spanning across the 482 wards and 44 local government areas of Kano State.
Inspired by his unyielding commitment to serve, Hon. Wakili embraced the challenge of contesting the post of a member of the House of Representatives in the upcoming 2023 general elections. Despite the limited political base of the ADC (African Democratic Congress) in his constituency, Fagge, he swiftly garnered immense support from the youth and women, transforming his name into a household phenomenon.
