I suggest using groupadd(8) instead.

BTW your system, if it is a RHEL/CentOS system, will already have a
'wheel' group, and you should add any people who need root access to
this group, and then you should use the 'visudo' command:

  sudo /usr/sbin/visudo

And then you can make sure you have lines like this:

## Allows people in group wheel to run all commands
%wheel  ALL=(ALL)       ALL

So that anybody in the wheel group will have use of sudo.
