Error in Log sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified

I am trying to connect as root to clean install of ubuntu 16.10 LTS. I have amended the etc/ssh/sshd_config to PermitRootLogin without-password. I can login using scp and shell set to default without problem.

If I change shell to sudo su - I get this error in log. Therefore cant login as root and edit files. In terminal I can sudo with a problem.
Thanks
Paul
