Hey, I recommend you this: run visudo to edit the sudoers file (/etc/sudoers):

# visudo
Then add this two lines:

# Members of the admin group may gain root privileges
%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL

Why? To save time, now anytime you need a new user with administrative privileges, just add it to the admin group.
