Graph API create groups and teams from SPFx webpart with elevated privileges

I have a SPFx webpart which is a form for users to submit requests which will run the group and teams provisioning code.

The code works fine when the user is logged in as a 'Global Admin', but when a normal user with minimum permission levels uses the form, the provisioning is not allowed and is faced with these errors:

Creating group is not allowed:

Creating teams is not allowed:

Is there a way to run the code regardless of the user context? or any ways to elevate the privilege of the webpart or block of code?

    Hi DanielChok-9925,

    When you create a new team under a group, one of the following permissions is required to this API.
