I think 12 months is far too long.
There is no need to apply for an ASN more than 6 months prior to deployment. The process should be quite simple and quite quick.
While I haven’t applied to AfriNIC for an ASN, I have applied in other RIRs and in all cases, I’ve been able to get the ASN within 24-48 hours of application.
Unforseen delays in being able to deploy one’s first peering session are understandable and even commonplace, but 6 months should be more than sufficient time allowance for such delays.
