2005 Nissan NV Passenger - I'm Ghana pull out the thermostat

hi, am in Ghana and I bought a Nissan-Isuzu from Japan.
The car has a milage of 159000 which makes it a second hand use. is it adviceable to remove the termostart from the car because I brought it to Ghana (weather)?

No, even in warm weather climates vehicles need the thermostat to get to the correct operating temperature. However, due to the age, have coolant replaced and keep a close eye on your temperature gauge, radiator could have a build up of rust and scale.
You didn’t ask, but stay with the recommended viscosity of oil, do not be tempted to go to a heavier weight due to climate.
