The traditional methods of research was linearistic and parochial, creating a bounded field of scientific enquiry. This methodological contraption suffocated research and it’s applicability to practical situations. This trend affected negatively the ability to switch between and among methodologies to draw on the best methods for best results. Triangulation is a theoretical framework that releases research from the deadly clutches of linearism and boundedness to accommodating diverse methodologies in order to utilize best methods and achieve best and most practical results. It accommodates Tran spatial and trans methodological research that switches among methods drawing on their strength and reducing their weaknesses. It is the only hope that will achieve a research regime that will be scientific and capable of bringing about National development and the attainment of the millennium Development Goals. This is the contention of this paper.
