If you have overlay scrollbars, I'm not sure if it's possible to make them wider. You can, however, disable them very easily, with following command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface ubuntu-overlay-scrollbars false

If you have default scrollbars, their width is controlled by the theme you're using.
