Taking to Twitter on Monday, 1 April to announce his achievement, Jordan could not hide his joy as he noted his decision to be a lawyer had granted his father justice after 23 years of waiting.

He was only six years old when his father was sued following a land dispute in 1996 and the case was still in court.
