Critical attributes that uniquely identify Ghana as the nearest dry land to the interjectional point of the Longitude and Latitude 0ᵒ in the Atlantic Ocean. Following the World declaration of the Greenwich as the Prime Meridian on 13th October, 1884 at Washington DC, made Tema-Ghana land the Centre of the World. Tema is located on the Longitude 0ᵒ and Latitude 5.73ᵒ north. That is 380 miles, 611km or 330 nautical miles to the Latitude 0ᵒ hence, Tema is the nearest habitable land to the Centre of the World. Additionally, NASA and other Space Scientists base their scientific exploration on Ghana’s Universal Time Coordinates.
The Ghana - Centre of the World project is specifically envisaged to translate the fact into tangible monumental structures and facilities that would stand the test of time and strategically benefit the nation as one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Africa and then the World at large.
