Built African cities/capitals, is it possible in Ghana?

A few years back we had a discussion in the GhanaConscious community about potential new capitals for Ghana. Personally, I love Sunyani. It's in the middle of the country, if we ever had to go to war or something, it will be difficult to capture our fortress. Well, I have better reasons than this one, but I used to think this way lol. Sunyani is also very clean and planned for the most part. Why even think of a new capital? Because Nigeria built one in Abuja and it's really good. Neighbouring Ivory Coast has Yamoussoukro too which ain't bad.

Here is a video of Abuja, Nigeria.

Here is a bonus video detailing a Nigerian Ultra Modern Railway Network Project, estimated to take 25years to complete.

Olusegun Obasanjo did have some good ideas I see.

It's not a crime to think big. At all. This Think BIG video showcases Ghanaians with big aspirations and big plans. It's a 28-minute documentary now available on DVD. See Youtube link for details

Does anyone know of any more designed capitals or cities in Africa or similar ones across the world?

Is it realistic for Ghana to even think of building a new capital or city or something of that sort?
I am hoping so.
