A former senator representing Kano Central, Najatu Mohammed Bola, has a new take on Tinubu and his wife.
Bola Tinubu's wife says she will take charge of Nigeria if elected president.
He said this in a program hosted on African Independent Television (AIT) on Wednesday.
The former senator recently announced his resignation from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
"In this case, you know that the hangman is just pushing it, knowing they can't do it and they're going to benefit. He's like an idol," he said.
"His wife will implement this decision. She will control the country and other dependents, even I think they hate Asiwaju because you cannot put a mentally ill person.
"What kind of people are we? "This thing could come back and destroy us all."
Mohammed also explained why he decided to support the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar.
"I saw the election in APC. They went to rallies and Asiwaju didn't understand. "When I talk to him, I sit with him for two hours and he usually sleeps," he said.
"You asked him about it, and he said it is very different from what you are talking about. So what is wrong with Nigerians? What is the benefit of you sacrificing more than 200 million people?"
He also said that the APC presidential candidate has no plan or agenda for the country.
"He told us there was nothing for us. I said, "What do you mean, sir, there is no plan?" I said. "I can't have a plan, because if I had a plan, I would have gone so far, even they could have killed me, " he said. That's what he said," he said.
"So I decided. Now I said the choice for me will be between Asiwaju and Atiku because they both have structures in their parties. Then I look for Atiku.
"I sat down with him and said, 'What are your plans for security and agriculture?' "I said. They gave me the whole book, and it took a few days.
"So someone sat down and I said, 'Look, Najaatu, you're trying to choose between the devil and the deep sea,' and I said yes, I'm going with the deep sea."
Commenting on his withdrawal from the APC, the former senator said it was absurd to say that his withdrawal from the party was a result of incompetence.
"I have to free myself from the shackles. That's why I have a job," he said.
"When they talk about how I was sacked because of my incompetence, it is cheap and ridiculous. At what point? The party does not belong to Asiwaju. This party is led by Abdullahi Adamu. He should remove me from the party.
