??? Why are you trying trying to muck around with suid commands when you can
start an ssh-agent as nwkuser, then ssh to localhost as root and load up
root's SSH keys as needed? Not that this is the way to do things: more
common would be to allow nwkuser's keys root access to hostname.

Is there some task you need to execute on breeze as the root user?
