There is a forum for people (like myself) who have applied in Africa - Partner visa applications in Pretoria... South Africa (https://www.australiaforum.com/visas...africa-74.html
). All visa applications in Africa are processed through Pretoria, South Africa. Unfortunately it can take a LONG time for the visa to be granted.
At the moment people from South Africa have received their visa recently after waiting 14 to 17 months. I just reached 11 months waiting. But the good news is, there have recently been a couple visa's granted to people from Southern and West African countries ... including one to a Nigerian.
Sorry to not have better news, but you have at least a 12 to 14 month wait - but probably closer to 17 to 24 months.
